Study: 8 Gallons Of Pee In An Average Public Pool

posted by Dan Rios - 

Stop peeing in pools. You may claim you are not doing it. But as indicated in my previous Forbes piece about how dirty many swimming pools and hot tubs are, one in five people admit to peeing in a pool...with the emphasis on the word admit. And now researchers at University of Alberta have a test to determine how much urine is in a swimming pool and using the test found in two swimming pools (one 110,000 gallons and another 220,000 gallons) nearly 8 gallons (30 liters) and 20 gallons (75 L) of urine. Since the average person does not excrete 20 gallons of urine during one pee (the average, according to a previous study, is 77.5 mL), this means that well over 400 people may have peed in the first pool and over 1,000 people in the second pool. Stop it. Stop using swimming pools and hot tubs as toilet bowls. Just stop it.
