    There are feces in pools because people don't shower before

    Interesting story. There are feces in pools because people don't shower before swimming, researchers say.

    CDC says it's important that chlorine and pH levels in pools are at proper levels. But swimmers can't count on 100% protection, Hlavsa says: "You have to take some responsibility."

    Those were all public pools. And...

    It's worth noting that Atlanta reported no outbreaks of water-borne illnesses in pools in 2012.
    The odds of getting sick from a well-maintained private pool are infinitesimal. In fact, that's a good reason to own a well-maintained private pool.
