23. Why must my child take a soap shower before getting in the pool?

Oils on the skin bond with chlorine in the water to form chloramine. Chloramine – not chlorine – is responsible for the burning eyes and itchy skin most people associate with pool water. Both of these conditions can be greatly reduced, for your child and all the other swimmers in the pool, by simply taking a soap shower before entering the water.
