Re: Disposable swim diapers

My sisters pool does this, they check on entry and she shows them a disposable one and then uses her cloth ...lol. I think the general public feel the disposable ones hold in pee?

I doubt that our pool specifically does not allow regular disposable diapers because of the swelling and the risk of one getting into the water and clogging the filters. Its pretty well known that swim diapers aren't for containing pee.. As for making Potty trained kids use them I don't know about all pool but ours is under 3 (I thought it was under 4 I was mistaken) most at that age are still in at least partial diapers a poo accident means complete shut down of the entire pool so I do get the rule. I still use one with my DD if we go the the public pool because she tends to get over excited and might not tell me but no one has actualy checked her for one... Not sure honestly if they are really enforcing the rule.

It's interesting that you posted this, because I saw on yesterday's news a story in a town near me, where they had to close their pool for the day for cleaning, due to fecal matter. The Facebook comments revealed that they do not allow any non-potty trained kids in the pool, at all. So what happens? Parents lie and say they are, then whoops, there's a dood in the pool.

Yep, that is the same as here. They don't check EVERY baby, but they do a cursory glance for the tell-tale bright blue, and often ask if they don't see it. They also don't really check if the pool is busy.

Re: Disposable swim diapers

The swim school pool I took my kids to would not let you use a disposable swim diaper. If they saw the blue diaper peaking out from the swimming suit, they would tell you to go to the front desk and buy a reusable cloth swim diaper.

Re: Disposable swim diapers

What I find the weirdest is some people have pools that require disposable and some people who require cloth. Seems that some pools/people had problems with 1 type and or the other.

I never went to a place that specified.

Re: Disposable swim diapers

It varies from place to place in my city. The indoor pools don't care what you have, just so long as you have something. They sell disposables at the front counter. This paddling pool is the first one I've been to where they actually state it must be disposable.
