It depends on the pool. If it's your own pool then you can put a young baby in as long as the baby doesn't get chilled. A month old baby could go in a warm, not hot, pool you trusted.
The baby pool at public pools can be bad ideas. If you want to use them I would go first thing in the morning. The two things to worry about are the baby getting too cold and the water quality.

The chlorine can be good for baby's skin. One of the things suggested for babies that have horrible eczema is to take baths in bleach, chlorine, water that is similar to a pool. If the chemicals are done right it won't hurt the baby's skin. If it's not your pool you can rinse the baby off in the shower.
It's funny that people are worried about a little bit of chlorine in a huge pool yet they use all kinds of dangerous chemicals directly on their baby's skin and don't even question what they are doing.
