I’d never really thought about it before, but it’s true: my backyard swimming pool* doesn’t have a strong chlorine smell, and the water doesn’t sting my eyes. Turns out that’s because folks at my house don’t pee in the pool.
Tip from Sara Hoyt writing at the Instapundit. Lots of links there about too many people peeing in our our pools.
*LOTS of The Wrong Kind of White (and Black and Brown) People (like me) in South Texas have swimming pools. And we hire independent contractors–even those without college degrees!–to keep them neat, clean, and non-smelly.
