    If they are in swim diapers the guards will ask you to keep them out of the pool.

    Well that is good to know....We have time to find someplace else to stay. I have 3 children and 2 are still in diapers. It would be very inconvienet if we got there and they could not go in the pool as they are like fish in the water.

    We do have a nice size kiddie pool that the infants seem to really enjoy.

    Wow! all this information that I hadn't really thought about! Now that I'm thoroughly grossed out, Ill continue with my preference with the ocean over the pool! And I thought I was just smelling the boat fuel in the water at the HI !!! Here's a thumbs up for Eagle Beach!lol

    CDC: 1 in 8 swimming pools closed, many too dirty

    "... It's based on more than 120,000 routine inspections of public swimming pools, including those in public parks and at hotels and motels. ..."

    thought i would bump this thread up.

    now that we are getting into spring and hopefully summer (sumer here in fla) just a reminder to LOOK at swimming pool 1st before you enter.
    if the water is murky........the pool should not be open.
    if you cannot see the bottom of the pool.........the pool should not be open
    the the water does not "sparkle".........possibly the pool should not be open.
    if there is an overwhelming chlorine smell........the pool chemicals are out of balance and the chlorine in the pool is not doing any good.

    it is not unusual for pools/resorts to allow swim diapers.
    most places in aruba and in the usa allow swim diapers.
    the swim diapers fit snugly and do not disintegrate and/or allow contents to spill out.

    in the event you are in a pool and someone is sick (vomit or diarrhea/liquid stool from child or adult) the law states the pool MUST be closed for a period of 20 - 24 hrs, shocked with disinfectant.......chlorine or bromine or whatever chemical the place uses.
    the pool must be cleaned (not emptied of water) and filter run for the entire shut down period.
    once that is done, a chemical called sodium thiosulfate is put into the water to kill off the high residue of disinfectant and then the pool manager brings the water into balance with the right amount of disinfectant/germicides.

    in the event of solid stool (ya i am on a roll this morning) the pool is to be closed for a couple of hrs, and the same chemical shocking takes place as well as cleaning it out of the pool.

    hot tubs/spas..........no margin of error at all and same procedure.

    if folks are prone to UTIs, stay out of even the cleanest of hot tubs.

    now, go back to enjoying your morning coffee and saturday r and r.

    paul and i are heading to the pool.
    we are in fla.
    wishing we are in aruba.

    and the most sparkling pools we have seen in aruba is lacabana's pool and costa linda's pool.
    i cannot speak for many others.
    tell us of your resort's pool, how it looks!!
