Interesting Facts About Swimming Pools Infographic

I thought everyone loved swimming pools. Whether it was an inground, above ground, or the public pool down the street. However, it turns out that there are not many people who know how to swim!

Below is the full infographic packed with interesting facts about swimming pools.

What Facts About Swimming Pools Shocked You?

We really want to hear from you! Let’s start a discussion in the comments below by telling us what fact or stat shocked you the most. Was it that 65% of the American population doesn’t know how to swim? That really blew our minds.

Or how about 17% of swimmers admit peeing in swimming pools? At the very least that should make you question yourself the next time you think about swimming in a public pool.

We are really interested in doing another infographic about swimming pools. If you have any additional facts and stats about pools, please share them in the comments below. We will give you credit in the graphic and in the blog post it appears on.
