Another Swimming Pool Danger

Posted: Updated:

Pools will be opening soon - and there's a new warning about the potential for injury from pool chemicals.  
The report from the Centers For Disease Control links 5-thousand visits to the emergency room in 2012 to pool chemicals. Nearly half of the patients were children and teens, and  more than a third occurred at a home. Most often people were overcome by strong vapors or chemical fumes.  
Don't forget to use goggles and masks when handling pool chemicals, and to be on the safe side never mix chlorine products with acids.
