Why are swimsuits required in the pool?


Most clothing is made out of fabric that expands when wet. This becomes a hazard for the swimmer because of extra weight and the possibility of becoming entangled in the clothing.



Lint from clothing comes out during swimming and clogs up pool strainers and impacts the flow of the water through the filter. The less water going through the strainers, the less clean water is going back to the pool.



Particles from different sources, including dirt and other contaminants, get caught in loosely woven fabrics like cotton and mesh, which contaminates the water once the fabric becomes wet.


Water Chemistry

Laundry detergent and fabric softener remains in loosely woven fibers like cotton and mesh. These chemicals deplete chlorine (the primary means of keeping pool water clean) and changes acid levels in the pool. When water chemistry is affected, the water is less clean.
