Sure, this is good news, I do see CCL change the pool water every night. My question is why is there a single drop of urine or anything else in the pool.... Come on people... don't be disgusting. I think I will continue to skip the pool except in the morning hours when it is clean.Angry

I have swum in lakes, creeks, rivers, oceans, pools ... you name it ... my entire life and I always shower whenever I get out of any type of water... ANY body of water has something going on in it BUT you just wash it away when you get out!!!

I never bathe....Surprised

Nothing like a good soak in human stew! I agree with DVCruise, shower off afterwards.....However, 2 gallons of Urine, holy smokes! Guess that is what happens when you put a bar next to a pool.

OK, maybe I'd use it if I got it fresh after the refill. But my home Jacuzzi is cleaner then that, filtered often, silver oxide canister, UV and ozone besides the chemicals....and I know I do not pee in it.

I better add that to our Woman Wanted Ad ... just saying ....

...but do the neighbors pee in it when they sneak in after midnight?

I think cruise ships should put the chemical in the pools that turns red when it mixes with pee.......that alone would be entertainment !!!! just point and say "HA HA" Big Smile

I was on one ship that the night time lights in the pool were yellow.

Very disgusting lookingBig Smile

Yellow pools lights - the worse!!
