    A dangerous dip in a Lubbock pool

    So how many ppm do you think this pool had in it to cause the injuries? It was an indoor pool.

    Sounds like they must use a chlorine gas system

    From what they said in the article, it sounds like it was a chlorine gas leak, not anything about the water, that caused the problem. Parents in the hallway were affected, which suggests that chlorine gas got into the ventilation system.

    Being an indoor pool my guess is poor ventilation and insanely out of balance pool with very high CYA and very high chlorine numbers. It seems many motels have no idea how to maintain their pools, the responsibility goes to a handy man, or even a front desk clerk, the attitude of a little is good a lot is better seems to be very common. I know of one small golf resort in my area that uses 2 quarts of expensive concentrated blue clarifier per day to maintain there pool. (I don't know the exact size pool, would guess under 50,000 gallons.

    That it was the 3rd time in five years its happened there is gross negligence. I hope there is follow up.
