What Turns Pool Water Blue When You Pee? [Expert Review!]

Spread the love

I love being by the pool. It’s not just because I love getting outside and being amongst nature. I also love the feeling of bathing in something that is as close to pristine water as you can get. It just makes you feel like you can almost feel clean again. If we could bottle that experience, you’d be getting a lot more than a swimwear advertisement. Although, if I did say that, it would be the least expensive bottle in the world. 😉

So it was a real treat when my fiancé decided to propose to me by taking me on a tour of the Salton Sea. You see, every year at the end of September, the water turns that perfect bright blue color. I have to admit that it took me a couple of seconds to understand what was going on, but once I did, I started seeing it everywhere. It made sense; the sky is often filled with beautiful, saturated colors at this time of the year, and the water reflects that beauty.

I looked into the history of the Salton Sea a bit, and found that in 1922, the sea was actually an estuary of the Colorado River. The river was dammed way back in 1858, creating Lake Moreno, which then dried up. Since the lake only holds about seven years’ worth of precipitation, it naturally overflowed, spilling into the desert. The water then became contaminated, as saltwater and sewage were mixed together in large amounts. Even now, the water isn’t actually that blue, it just looks that way because of the algae that grows in it. This algae is actually very helpful, as it feeds off the contaminates in the water and cleans it. But if you look closely at the water, you’ll see that it’s actually a mix of many different colors, like teal, green, and purple. When the algae dies off in the wintertime, the water turns a murky brown color, which some people even refer to as ‘shit brown’ or ‘Gulf color’! That’s pretty grim. So the next time you’re near a body of water that turns that perfect blue color, take a second to appreciate how amazing it is. It’s not just that you’re by the pool, it’s that the pool is actually perfect!

When To Love The Water

You may be wondering when this article would end and a proposal would start. Well, I’ll tell you when. It’s when you begin to notice the small things that make the water so special. It’s the little organisms living in it that cause all the changes that you notice. As I mentioned before, the algae that blooms in the sea is very helpful, as it helps cleanse the water. But it’s also responsible for turning your pool water a vivid blue. This is what turns your pool water blue when you pee! Algae when in bloom also provides the sea with an incredible food source, turning it into a living paradise, replete with sea turtles, seagulls, and fish. I say all this to show you how crucial it is to maintain a clean pool – especially if you have young children around the house.

I love being near water, and being by the pool is truly one of the most beautiful experiences. I just need to be mindful of the fact that my lovely fiancé is planning on taking me out there for a wedding registry soon. So I guess we’ll need to find a way to make sure our pool is clean for at least the next six months. I’m sure with some TLC, this will be no problem. We’ll just have to be a bit more vigilant about keeping it clean.
