    Of course. The chlorine takes are of it!

    Yes! But I don't admit It except on polls.

    No. That's gross but I'm not sure why.

    NO. It's disgusting!!!!!

    @bcloves83:  Interesting article by a marine biologist. Basically he says one person- no probably wouldn’t hurt marine life but when you multiple that by how many people do actually pee in the ocean then yes!
     Edit to say urine apparently kills coral as well! I remember being told not to on a dive so pulled out the info. At the great barrier reef they ask you to refrain from peeing!

    I don’t pee anywhere but the toilet!

    Gross I hate the internet. I found this gem- apparently if a pool smells chloriney it is because of the amount of pee in it!

    Public pools are subjected to chlorine, which acts as a disinfectant. Whenever you get down into a public pool, you instantly get the stench of chlorine. Part of the chlorine is due to the concentration of induced chlorine in water, the rest of the stench comes from Ammonium Chloride. This Ammonium Chloride is formed due to the mixing of Chlorine and Ammonia arising out of urine in the pool water.

    In order to make pools a better place to swim and relax and to lessen the impact of Chlorine stench, abstain from peeing in pools.

    I do not pee in the pool, my daughters who are 2 and 5 even get out to use the potty. I am grossed out by the fact that so many people pee in pools.
