So we are a solid month into swim season (our second year) and I’m sitting outside last night talking with my wife while looking at the pool and we have the following conversation:
Wife: “Are you going to give the kids a bath tonight? (Bath’s are my duty)
Loving Husband: “They’ve been swimming for a half hour they should be clean and sterile!”
Wife: “Well, they need their hair washed we don’t want it to turn green!”
Laughing Husband: “It’s not the chlorine in the water that turns hair green, it’s dissolved copper of which we have none.”
Wife: “Okay well since we don’t have Chlorine don’t you think you should wash off the salt”
I’m also amazed at the guests who inquire that it’s a salt water pool and think that no chlorine is used. I tried to explain it last year but learned my lesson. And I’ll never mention bleach again (unless I sense a scientific logical conversation can be had with said guest).
