Growing excitement about pool season may turn to disgust.
The Centers for Disease Control reports that each year thousands of public pools, hot tubs and water playgrounds have serious violations that lead to temporary closure.
Chemical concentrations can be off, drain covers may come loose, not to mention those who may use the pool more like a bathroom than a place to swim.
CDC researchers looked at data from the five states with the most public pools and hot tubs: Arizona, California, Florida, New York and Texas.
In those areas, one in five kiddie pools had to be closed at some point for violations.
