Truth or myth: dyeing the pool water from the urine

All fans of swimming in the pool say that special compounds are added to the water, which are able to change its color when in contact with urine…

It is so easy to calculate those who relieve a small need in the wrong place. But is this true and does such a reagent actually exist, especially since even the English-language Wikipedia writes about its mythical origin? And people say that they themselves saw how the color of the water changes next to the bathing person to purple or red. There are episodes that illustrate the process itself, even in Comedy films.

Frankly, there are such chemicals, although they are not cheap, so they are rarely used. And the management of pools uses them reluctantly, because the water with them reacts to sweat, and this can compromise innocent citizens. By the way, in the laboratories of the Russian Federation, such tools were not tested by SanPiN, therefore, their use is prohibited in our country.

In Europe and the United States, substances are added, but every year less often and exclusively in elite sports complexes. Thus, their owners demonstrate to their customers the impeccable purity of water. In other words, the tool was also too expensive for developed countries. In most pools, the water is simply chlorinated or decontaminated with an ozonator.

Speaking of security of urine. Do not assume that the chlorine in the pool will neutralize everything. In chlorinated water, which fall into natural secretions, including the sweat glands, the formation of chloramines. They give an unpleasant smell and irritation, as well as sting your eyes. Pure chlorinated water almost does not smell and does not harm the mucous membranes.
