EWWW: You Don’t Even Want To Know How Much Urine There Is In Hotel Pools But I’ll Tell You Anyways

A new study has found that the average hotel pool contains an insane amount of human urine:

A new study, published this month in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, suggests that as many as 20 gallons, or 75 liters, in a large swimming pool may be pee.For three weeks, researchers calculated the levels of ACE in public and hotel swimming facilities (and one private residence, just for good measure). What they found was that ACE occurred in measurable quantities in every single body of water, and at concentrations much higher—about 570 times—than Canadian tap water.In a smaller swimming pool (about half of an Olympic-size pool), there still may be about 8 gallons, or 30 liters, of urine.Hot tubs, however, are the worst. The study includes one hot tub that contained “more than double that of any other sample taken,” according to the report. (via T&L)

That means that on average, there’s at least half a garbage can full of pee-pee floating around hotel pools. Sometimes, there’s A TON MORE, as is the case with jacuzzis. So now, how excited are you for summer vacation plans LOL
