public pools? might as well swim in the toilet!!!

I do t care where u live or where you go...to me a public pool is a cess pool of everyone's funk. I can't get excited about my kids swimming in a pool where tons of people have swam. who knows when the last time anyone showered? or if someone has some nasty skin infection, or who is on the rag? and don't even get me started on the rest rooms!! freaking GRRRRROSSSSSSSSS

So disagree Chlorine kills any bacteria.  I would much rather a pool than a lake or ocean.

Okay so you punish your kids and do no swimming in the summer because of your insecurities.  Got it.

Those are actually far more unhealthy and full of germs than public pools that use chlorine and must adhere to strict guidelines with water that is constantly tested.
