    I have never swam in a public swimming pool for decades. haha. Anyways, I believe it's also the responsibility of parents to keep an eye on their children.

    Is the SJ public pool clean ?
    As one grows older, one has to eat healthier. So, add more vegetables into the mix

    So true, parents are responsible too especially if their kids can't swim well....normally there are signs that warn/advise parents.

    When I was around 10 years old or somewhere around there, my mom took us kids there often at weekends for usual fun. Mom would join in too of course. Lots of people from all walks of life and ethnicity.
    The crux is, people and families were observed as very responsible. The very young and toddlers were closely watched and only allowed into the children's paddling pool. I even recall there were snack stalls at the pool area. People can have a nice picnic there.
    Lifeguards were also very responsible and eagle eyed on high chair on the lookout. I don't recall drowning or serious accidents in the news. PJ Swimming pool of Weld Road swimming pool. I think I visited 2-3 times one swimming club at Penang. The water was salty filtered sea water. Those were the days. Now?..everything changed it seems.

    It's sad that even the lifeguards are now manned by foreigners. What happened to the locals?

    PJ swimming pool is still there but the good old days of Weld swim pool is long gone. I wished I had taken a photo there for remembrance purposes.

    I'm reckoning there's a lot of jobs locals do not want to involve themselves anymore, all want to be towkay someday..so who fills in the void?..either foreigners or the desperate.
    Even locals at some fast food chain do not see themselves working there for long..all insisting to prosper or some stepping stone meanwhile. For the foreigner, its rake up till times up or enough to bring back more than what they get back home.
    Even your Radio TV repairmen are foreigners..no more like me still repairing this and that. Yes, its a sad thing, I cringe at what the next generation will see.

    Nowadays getting into a pool is quite a issue. I dont know if they enforce the swimming costume rule strictly. If they dont then there is the issue of people jumping in with their clothes. If they are chased away there is the issue of religion involved, if you know what i mean.

    Not only swim costumes but most people do not shower before entering the pools

    they dont wear costumes but are garbed like normal with the full works covering from head to toe and because pool water is cholorinated , the colour runs into the pool water and it becomes a cess pool

    Another reason what this country is becoming to..sigh!
    Chlorine in any tropical swimming pool must be maintained at near 3ppm. UV light kills chlorine effect, this close addition and maintenance must be more than other lands. Any less and the quality is compromised. The formation of microscopic algae is what makes the water turn murky or green.

    I took this photo of the swimming pool in Bangkok where we stayed & here is a classic example.

    yes, its acceptable..its usually what's achieved in tropics and hot weather. I repeat, HOT SUNNY weather. The readings also shift at different times of the day. 3ppm is ideal, not overkill but thats going to cost more,
    BTW..people do report "cholorine smell in water".. the typical symptom of NOT enough chlorine or to required ppm.
    Chlorine is the most basic sanitizer chemical for water treatment. Then again..sanitization is just one half of the process, the other is the filtration pump system. Its to be running near continuously depending on size, use and environment. The system gotta be TIP TOP!..no if's no buts to keep water perfect condition.

    As far as I know, if you smell chlorine in the water of a swimming pool, it only means it's very much over 3 ppm

    I knew the reasons 30 years ago. Now got internet, be my guest to research the reasons.
    I dealt directly with water treatment industry experts and pool suppliers, they couldn't be wrong, no? But then, swimming pool maintenance isn't rocket science or master degree in chemical engineering. Its the effort and cost to maintain it in a consistent manner. Anyone can maintain their own pool, only to be competently advised and followed up.
