Sign at my neighbor's pool in the neighborhood I grew up in -

"Do not pee in our pool; we know you do not swim in your toilet."

Most of the pools don't have a ladies room by the pool so If I have to pee when swimming I pee in the pool.
If I'm on the beach on the river I always go out in the river sometimes just to pee in it.
I pull my bottoms down to mid thigh and hold on to them and pee standing in the pool or river. Finished I pull my bottoms up and swim away.
If there is a ladies room I'll use it instead of peeing in the pool
I've noticed the same myself in Motel Pools. Whether indoor or outdoor, they often don't have restrooms near. A few weeks ago while traveling on business I noticed moms sending kids over to a shower in the corner of room. They took a quick shower, but I don't imagine that's why they went there.

In that case, better to use the shower or pool?

Peeing in the Pool

As I mentioned in another post I pee in the pool most of the time.
A one piece swimsuit is hard to get out of to pee so it's just easier to pee in the pool.

It should be sterile, but a lot of people carry antibiotic resistant bacteria in their urine, and a lot of people are walking around with undiagnosed UTI's. Peeing on the shower floor is just disgusting. All I gotta say is let that shower water run a longggg time, and wash hands after exiting the washroom and touching those door handles....
