Poolside Dangers

By | source: Jun 6th, 2012

A nice dip in the pool is the perfect way to stay chill on any summer day. As a child I wasn’t the best swimmer, but I always felt a certain serene connection was made upon entering the calm, clear waters. My go to move was the cannonball and I judged its success on how many innocent bystanders I let witness my splash attack. A la Magikarp.

Today’s infographic focuses on when a trip to the pool can turn ugly. Each year over 10, 000 Americans encounter pool caused discomfort. Symptoms can range from vomiting, fever, and diarrhea. Cleanliness is next to Godliness, so remember to protect yourself and others. Be sure to shower before you hit the pool and don’t swallow the water.

The infographic also gives signs to look for in a clean and safe pool. Make sure the water is clear and you can see the bottom of the pool. Also, beware of the odor the pool emits. A clean pool should only smell a little of chlorine. Go through this infographic prior to your next pool visit and stay safe! [Via]
