First: 1‑in‑five adults admit to peeing in the pool.
Also, nearly 70% of swimmers don’t shower before swimming. That just adds to the germ soup already in the pool.
Then, if your eyes are turning red, get out of that pool! It’s NOT a reaction to chlorine, because the only thing that causes pool red-eye is bodily fluids and waste.
Finally, a chemically, chlorine smell doesn’t mean there’s too much chlorine in the pool – it means there’s not enough – and what IS in there is reacting with waste matter.
