    Infants with diapers NOT allowed in pool at Costa Linda

    Because, if the swim diaper fails then they must close the pool, drain it, clean it and reopen which can take a week. Today at the pool I saw a Father wade in with his child - this is the second time I've seen the same man stopped by security and told he can't be in there. I'm sure he thinks it's a silly rule but..... just imagine not being able to use the pool at your resort/hotel because of this.

    You are right. Very rarely do I go in the pools anymore for this simple fact. I will not take the chance of becoming sick due to the selfishness (or ignorance ) of someone else.

    At Christmas at the Tamarijn there was a person who everyday took their naked infant into the swimming pool. I wouldn't even dip a toe in that pool I was grossed out enough swim nearby in the ocean with them present.

    wait, they didn't let the kid in the pool even with the swim diaper? i've seen countless infants with swim diapers in the pool. the same bacteria can be transmitted by adults also:

    On average people have about 0.14 grams of feces on their bottoms which, when rinsed off, can contaminate recreational water. People who have diarrhea have millions of germs. If a swimmer has diarrhea, he or she can contaminate water if he or she has an "accident" in the pool.

    To further brighten everyone's day, approximately 35% of a healthy human's fecal matter is, by weight, living organisms.

    I've never heard of having to close a pool for a week for a potty accident. My son is a lifeguard, and the only accidents he's mentioned is of the solid variety. They have to get everyone out of the pool, some poor lifeguard has to net the bm, and then they have to "shock" the water with a high dose of chlorine. The pool has to be closed for 30 mins. It seems like if it's a diarrhea issue, it would be a much more labor and time intensive process though. Actually, I'm also surprised to hear that there are pools that are closed to babies in in swim diapers. That's a new one for me.

    You inspired me to use the mighty google. Here's a link to the CDC recommendations for taking care of "fecal accident" in a public pool. Or the aptly named What Do You Do When You Find Poop in the Pool?

    I've seen signs that children not potty trained can only enter the pool with a swim diaper on. In Aruba there are countless kids in the pool with swim diapers on. I've never seen anyone removed from the pool for wearing a swim diaper. I'll have to take notice our next trip. I am more concerned with the pool that has the swim up bar. I watch and notice that some of these people are drinking at the bar all day and never once get out of the pool to use the restroom. HMMMM
