While we at College Magazine set out in hopes of presenting a shocking exposé about public pools, (fortunately for you) we’ve found the dangers are nothing out of the ordinary. In fact, urine aside, the grossest thing you might find hanging out in the pool is a ball of hair or an orphaned Band-Aid (should we mention the “floating baby poop” cited by one pool-goer? …yeah, so maybe that isn’t exactly in the everyday hair ball/Band-Aid category). But the point is, don’t stress too much about the cleanliness of a pool. If nothing appears to be visibly amiss, chances are you’ll make it out alive and well.
