When I was little, one of my mamma's friends had a swimming pool. Before getting in, she always told us that they had a chemical in the pool that made the water turn red if you peed in it. I believed her and it made me very paranoid. I guess it was just her way of making sure we didn't pee in the pool.
i just read a belief by someone who was told that if someone peed in the swimming pool it would react with the chemicals and make a trail of colour and everyone would know.
i thought that was true... is it really not??

I was about 5 or 6 when my swimming instructor lead me to believe that if you pee'd in a swimming pool, you could not get away with it, 'cause your urine would turn red, and it would form this red ring around you, so everyone would look at you in disgrace!! I went on to believe it for many years to come, and always refrained from doing so!

My grandchildren believe that if you pee in the pool the water turns blue as a result of a chemical added to the water to prevent such things from happening and thus everyone will know when you have done it.

I used to believe that if I urinated in our pool the water would turn red. My father made me believe it, telling me there was a special chemical in the pool-system which could detect urine. I plan to use this method on my own kids as well.
i remember when i was swimming with my friends once, they said if you peed in the pool, a big yellow cloud would surround you so everyone would know who peed in the pool. i believed them for quite a while.

My older cousin told me when I was young that if I peed in the pool the water would turn purple. I didn't do it for a long time until one day I was brave enough to proove it false. hehe.
I went to a family friend's pool while visiting. I was about 6 at the time. He told me that there was a new chemical that made a red ring around a person if they peed in the pool. I then went to school later on telling my friends all about this awesome chemical, and I told them to watch out for it.
