How much pee is in our swimming pools? New urine test reveals the truth

From The Guardian

Studies reveal that 3 out of every 4 people have done this, and yet nobody will admit to doing so.  Unfortunately, it seems like a harmless activity at the time.  In reality, the byproducts of the chemical reaction of sanitizers and compounds in urine can potentially cause harm to humans far beyond what was previously understood.  This post from The Guardian reveals a new scientific test that can actually measure the amount of urine in swimming pools.  Understanding this number will go a long way towards removing these dangerous compounds and hopefully creating awareness of how harmful urine can be in a swimming pool.

Basic Pool Chemistry 101

from Swim University

Swimming pool chemistry can be a mystery to even the most seasoned swimming pool professionals.  Things like chlorine demand, phosphate levels, and bio film can make the hair of experienced swimming pool professionals stand on end.  It is no wonder then that the average swimming pool owner sometimes can get into trouble keeping their swimming pool water balanced.  This post from Matt Giovanisci from Swim University explains the most basic forms of swimming pool chemistry, and gives a no nonsense guide to keeping the Langlier Index in balance.
