Swimming pools[edit]

There should be some mention of chlorination of swimming pools - and has any research been done on the impact of 'necessary chemicals' on persons visiting such places regularly? Anna Livia (talk) 15:44, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

It can cause allergic inflammation.[1] Bongolian (talk) 17:52, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
Should there not be some mention of swimming pools etc (and will some of the allergies be to 'other chemicals present' - shampoo traces, aftershave etc etc). 18:20, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
I mean, it can't hurt, but who's gonna hang the bell on the cat? ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 18:51, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
Most cats object to being washed.
Probably 'Swimming pools are chlorinated against humans' would suffice. Anna Livia (talk) 22:31, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
Well, that's not missional. But sure. And it's not "against humans" it's "as a sanitary measure to control waterborne diseases" ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 13:47, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Considering that humans often provide the diseases and chemicals (including urea) a minor gibe. Anna Livia (talk) 17:27, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
