View Full Version : pissing in the pool.
06-15-2000, 01:27 PM
Inspired by the peeing in the shower (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?threadid=27543) thread... I'm wondering, does anyone pee in the pool? Whether it's your own pool, a public pool, or someone else's pool -- does or would anyone do it? Just for the record, I've done it in a public pool, and in a friend's pool.

This thread reminds me of the funniest "please don't pee in our pool" signs I've seen.
"Welcome to our ool. Please notice there is no "p" in it. Please keep it that way."

Are you really expecting a large group of folks to come out and endorse this practice?
"Hell, yes, I piss in public swimming pools every chance I get!"
"I just love the temporary rush of warmth I get in my trunks!"
"I actually make sure I drink a ton of beer right before I head over to Jimmy's house, and hold it 'til I get in that sparkling pool of his."
"Peeing in the pool at the YMCA is one of my favorite things to do. In fact, me and the other girls at work all get together on the weekends to see if we can change the color of the water. I think we need a few more people if this is going to work."
"Sometimes I don't even bother to get in the water. I just stand at the end of the diving board and let 'er rip!"
06-15-2000, 02:11 PM
I'll do it, if it's a big pool. :)
I always pee in the Atlantic, too. All the freakin time.
"We don't swim in your toilet, so please don't pee in our pool."

Did I touch a nerve or what? It's just a question. It's a question about urinating in something other than a toilet, just like the peeing in the shower thread.

I pee in the shower 'cause it goes right down the drain where it belongs.
In the pool it just kinda floats around until it dissipates and gets filtered out (eventually). Big difference.
I don't swim in your shower. Don't pee in my pool.

I'm not asking if you go into the pool to specifically use it as a device to relieve yourself. I'm just wondering if you happened to be swimming in it, and just happened to let it go one day.
Maybe you're in a pool at someone's house who you don't particularly like, and you'd like to give a little something back. Maybe someone you've had your eye on walks by and smiles at you, and out of fear, you let a little out. Maybe the public pool you've been swimming at for five years is now charging for use of their restrooms, and as a gesture of your good faith, you put in your "two cents."
That's what I'm wondering -- who has actually done it? When I said I did it, I didn't mean that when I had to go, I would find the nearest pool just so I could pee in it. It just happened to be one of those spur of the moment things.

I pee nearly every time in the pool. Getting out of the pool, padding over to the bathouse, peeling reluctant trunks off yourself in front of the urinal for a 30-second piss seems like too much trouble.
Yes, there is that warm feeling all over the front of my swim trunks, but then it washes away.
It's a big pool. I hope they clorinate the hell out of it. I try NEVER to get pool water in my mouth.

I was just trying to be funny.

lordy...I need to add several folks to my "never invite over for a swim party" list...

I took swimming lessons at the Y when I was a kid. My swimming instructor always got mad when in mid-lesson I had to get out and go to the bathroom. She would belittle me. I thought what else am I supposed to do? I always went just before class, but I seldom made it through without getting out to pee.
This same instructor was horrified when I sneezed in the pool. I had little warning with that :-(
06-16-2000, 09:26 PM
I'll stand up proudly and declare that I have been guilty of this. I haven't been in a pool for several years, now, but when I was a kid, I just couldn't see that much of a difference between a pool and a giant toilet.
06-16-2000, 10:09 PM
Never again do I get into a public swimming pool.
06-16-2000, 11:50 PM
I'm with 2nd Law, i'm never going anywhere near a public pool again. In fact, i think i just may never go swimming again at all. Nah, couldn't do that, i like swimming to much. Hmmm, scuba gear? Nah, to much trouble.
1) Does the Las Vegas hotel for the Doper convention have a pool?
2) Any of these jokers on the list?
06-17-2000, 02:40 PM
I just got home from the beach (Atlantic Ocean), and I suddenly fell yucky all over! Just another reason to shower when I get home!
I used to pee in the pool when I was a kid until someone told me that they were putting some special chemicals in the pool to keep people from peeing in it. They said that these chemicals would turn the pee green and a green pool would follow you around so everyone would know that you peed in the pool! I haven't peed in a pool ever since even though I know this is bullshit!

Some kids poop in our local public pool & it take a long time to clean it up. So I assume they pee by the tons too.
There was some talk here recently about peeing in your wetsuit & how high you could make the pee go, one guy got it to his face.
06-18-2000, 12:28 PM
I dunno bout peeing in the pool, but why are people so bothered by that, yet never give a thought to swimming in rivers, lakes, oceans etc, which are filled with creatures that pee, poop, fuck AND die there.
Pet candiru. That's the only language these people will understand.
06-18-2000, 05:15 PM
I would like to reply that to reply to this would constitute a reply that would be unacceptable as a reply.
I have, I don't like too, I will prolly do it again, I know others have, my life is too short already to worry about it too much.
The answer is 42 of course but 69 is a good number also.

Can only say when you are in the Pacific ocean, 400 yards from shore & the water is 50 & the nearest restroom is 700 yards or more, that lowers your resistance to peeing in your suit.
Locally you are expected to shower before getting in the public swimming pool. Does anyone know why this is?
06-19-2000, 12:17 PM
I always thought the showers were there so you could get your body use to having cold water on it before getting into the pool. I never used them for that though. I always used them after I was done swimming to rinse the chlorine off of me.
06-19-2000, 02:59 PM
For those of you who have never owned a pool nor have had relatives who have owned a pool, the purpose of the pre-shower before the actual swim is to get all your dingy oils off your body. It is a SWIMMING pool not a BATHING pool. If everyone swam in the pool without taking a quick rinse then the pool would get dingier faster from the bodies native oils. In fact it does this in pools that aren't over-chlorinated. They do it in the prospective hopes of not needing to over-chlorinate the pool to keep it clean which in turn saves them more money becuase the pool chemicals are much more expensive than quick showers.
06-19-2000, 03:40 PM
and oh'yeah I P
it just seems natural, was scared off for about 5-7 minutes by the green chemical that would mark you as a P'er, then I said what the heck, everyone's drunk, it would be a riot if this thing actually exists and I don't feel like getting out of the pool and waiting on line to use the bathroom.
Kind of relieved that the green chemical was BS, but disappointed in a way because we all might have got out of the water and pissed in the pool till the whole thing was green (which would be alot more fun then waiting on the line for the one bathroom that seemed to be always occupied by some girl that took what seems like all day).

I never pee in the pool, but I do when I'm swimming in a lake-- the fish do it, why shouldn't I?
06-20-2000, 03:57 PM
DAMN! You found me out. I always tell my friends I use that chemical that turns urine green, and my guests always get out of the pool to use the washroom. I even gave it a name: Verticycline--made it up. (vert=green in french)
I used to say "Having a restuarant with a smoking/no smoking section is like having a pool with a peeing/no peeing section."
Then my friends would ask which section was which!

For the record I stand against peeing in the pool.
However, I am for peeing in the ocean. Where else are you suppose to use the bathroom when you are out on your boat or at the beach?? Besides, I figure that the Atlantic ocean is big enough to handle a little urion.
I have a true peeing in the pool story I would like to share. I was in Mexaco a couple of years ago at one of those nice resorts with a pool bar. This bar was really neat. You could swim up and sit on this underwater stool and order a drink. The whole time you were drinking you could have your butt underwater! I loved that bar.
I was sitting there one day with several people I had met on the trip. There was one really annoying drunk man who was bothering everyone. Whenever someone tried to leave he would get upset and beg them to stay for one more drink. After a couple of hours I was done and tried to leave. When he begged me to stay I told him I had to go because I needed to use the bathroom. I figured once I was out of the pool I could make a break for it.
The man loudly replyed. "Why don't you just pee in the pool? That's what I have been doing"
Needless to say I have never seen a pool empty so fast in my life!

This thread reminds me of a story that I heard from one of my medical friends. Back when he was in medical school they had a party at the common house of apartment complex where several of the students lived. Use of the house included use of the pool. One of the refreshments planned for the evening was a wapatooi, essentially a witch's brew of liquor, fruit juice and soda mixed in a clean garbage can. Kind of a fratboy's wassail bowl.
One of the students had the bright idea of mixing a quantity of methylene blue into the noxious punch. Methylene blue is an organic dye that has the wonderous property of not being metabolized as it passes through the excretory system. In other words, what goes in blue comes out blue. All of the men and none of the women were informed of this addition to the libations.
According to my friend, great, but short-lived, sport was had watching for the tell-tale blue plumes emanating from pool peers. Eventually everybody caught on to what was happening, but, nonetheless, the bar had been reset for party pranks.

Why would you pee in a pool that you're swimming in? Do you really want the urine in the water washing ALL OVER YOUR ENTIRE BODY?
06-22-2000, 03:01 PM
Awww, it's such a weak solution, your body hardly notices. Plus, it's relatively sanitary (unlike other waste products). Hell, people used to brush their teeth with the stuff.
If you go swimming in an ocean, river, stream, etc., you're getting fish piss all over you anyway, along with rotting bits of dead fish, whale sperm, diesel fuel, sewage, and all the solid junk people dump in the water.
It's the thought of swimming in people piss that grosses you out, but that's actually much less nasty, since it's clean water that's over-chlorinated, with a little bit of sanitary piss in it. If you drank a glass of it, you would probably be fine.
06-22-2000, 03:43 PM
Sometimes I take a dump in the water fountain at work. Y'know, just for a bit of variety.
But I would never pee in the pool. That's just nasty.
06-24-2000, 04:02 PM
Let me amend my statement about the safety of drinking a glass of poolwater that's been peed in. That would be true if all people did was pee in the pool. But the real truth is that suntan lotion, body oils, pleghm (sp?), fecal matter from insufficiently wiped bottoms, spit, and all the rest are in that pool. A little urine is nothing in comparison.

Well, let's face it, if you walk up and pee in a pool you're not swimming in, people aren't going to invite you to their parties anymore.
Do you really want the urine in the water washing ALL OVER YOUR ENTIRE BODY?
Urine and sweat are essentially the same thing. Unless you cover yourself head to toe with Speedstick on hot days, you're getting the same effect anyway.
I have a friend whose father works on a Navy base that has a pool--they use it for training, and there are community swimming functions as well. She told me once how many gallons of urine per week they estimate has to be filtered out--I don't remember the number now, but it was impressive.
