Yes, Brad, for a number of reasons. I did a radio interview last year on WNYC on all the diseases reported to the CDC that are transmitted every year by recreational water exposures. But the fact that got the most comments from listeners was talking about the "chlorine" odor around pools. A freshly chlorinated pool has very little odor. That strong odor we associate with pools is not chlorine, but chloramine--which is the reaction product of chlorine with nitrogen-containing substances from people, mainly from urea. Makes one stop and think before leaping in.

Pools are bad news!
