Typically you shouldn’t wear your street clothes in the pool, taking a quick dip probably won’t have too much of an effect on your pool, but it’s a suggest that you don’t wear them in your pool regularly. Wearing your clothes in the pool has different effects on your pool. Such as your health, safety and the effects on your pool.
Experts say, probably not – after all that’s what they invented bathing suits for isn’t it? If you were swimming 100 years ago, odds are you’d definitely be swimming in alot more clothing than you are today. Standards change however and so does swimming attire. From a safety standpoint, you are safer swimming with as least amount of clothing on as possible.
Diving into a pool or lake with your full clothes on isn’t the best idea, it may seem fun and a good idea at the time. Although the outcome is a different story. Trying to swim in your soaking wet clothes only makes it more difficult. Your clothes become heavy and a burden to carry. This leads to certain safety issues, especially if you’re not the best swimmer out there. Chlorine can also ruin your clothes or heavily fade them.
Most clothes gather different types of bacteria in the material, they also remain in the material much longer than a regular swim suit. If you or your friends were to courageously jump in the pool all the bacteria would then go into the pool and with all the different bacterias floating around, others could get sick by continuing to swim in that pool. This is a potential health hazard if you’re not careful.
Along with your health, we have the maintenance of your pool to worry about. Jumping into the pool with your clothes could change the color of your pool, and not in a cool way. The dye of some clothing material could come off in the water and while it may not be noticeable right away. The next day you could come outside to see your pool cloudy and possibly growing algae. If you keep your pool up to date with chlorine then you are on the safer side of things and this is an easy fix. Although an easy fix, this can all be avoided by not wearing your clothes in the pool. For safety, health and work labor reasons.
