  • I prefer the lake or ocean, alot of pools have to much chlorine in them. I am highly allergic to chlorine.I have swim shoes so the bottom is no issue for me.  Plus I live near a lake, not a p[ool or the ocean.

  • Pool

    I am terrified of the thought of a shark being in the same waters.

  • Pool. I refuse to swim in the ocean - about 5 years ago I went to the beach and swam with my husband and his family...while changing out of my bathing suit I found dozens of little bugs - they were in the water and got into my suit. That day I'm pretty sure at least a dozen other women saw my tits because I started screaming in the dressing room and there is no doors, just stalls and of course a few women came running to see why I was screaming but I don't care - I wasn't embarrassed because I had a very good reason to be freaking out. I was in the shower for over an hour and I've never been in the ocean since. I don't mind lakes, but around here you have to watch out for snakes and snapping turtles...they like certain parts of lakes and ponds.

  • Pool. Most lakes around here are dirty and the ocean leaves that nasty white film from the salt....

  • After I saw Jaws, definitely POOL!

  • Pool for sure. I like that it's got something in it to kill off bacteria, and that there's no critters swimming around in it.
