No, it's not the chlorine in the pool that makes your eyes red after swimming in the pool.

As we head into summer, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevent (CDC) and their collaborators want to dispel some myths about the swimming pool. Myth number one is that your eyes get red from the chlorine in the pool. Nope. It's urine in the water that makes your eyes bloodshot.

And that 'chlorine' smell at the pool is actually the odor that forms when chlorine mixes with urine, sweat and dirt from swimmers.

Just a little reminder/request to use the bathroom to relieve your bladder and take a shower before jumping in the clean pool.
