Don't drink the water: CDC says diarrhea-inducing parasite on therise in U.S. pools by edellwy
If you’re planning to take a dip in a pool this summer, make sure to plug your nose and close your mouth. Any inadvertent ingestion of even chlorinated pool water could wind up giving you cryptosporidium. More simply known as “crypto,” the microscopic parasite can make otherwise healthy adults...

Just How Much Pee Is In That Pool? by Ralph Ellis
You know that sharp odor of chlorine from the swimming pool you can recall from earliest childhood? It turns out it's not just chlorine, but a potent brew of chemicals that form when chlorine meets sweat, body oils, and urine. But up until now, just how much urine has been difficult to...

Circuit Court Offenders by John Kennerson
Why in the hell is an opinion from Judge James J. Lombardi's desk showing up on the virtualcourthouse.info website when no other opinions/judgments from this judge turn up in any internet searches? It looks like this Judge James J. Lombardi intentionally and willfully retaliated against the...

hose adaptor advice wanted by oneamous
After plumbing my deck I need to know what I can use to adapt from 1 1/2 OD plastic pipe to the pump inlet and to the jet on the side of the pool. I thought of radaitor hose. The pump, hoses and pool connectors seem to be a non standard size (smaller than 1 1/2).

Tricks for keeping water out of fairly new goggles? by [email protected]
I have a fairly expensive pair of Barracuda goggles. I only swim once or twice a week and not for long periods. The goggles kept water out initially. After 3-4 swims, however, I was not able to keep water out of the right side. Now, after probably thirty times, I can't keep water out of the left...

long torso, short legs by GoodSwimFan
I read articles about Michael Phelps that say he has the ideal swimmer's body, in particular, a long body with short legs. I'm curious why a long body with short legs is supposed to be good. My guess would be the opposite: that to excel in fly, you need longer legs and a shorter body -- less...
