I don't know about you, but public swimming pools kinda gross me out.  I mean you just never know what you're dipping into.  I don't use a swimming pool as a bathroom, but you just never know who else does.  In fact a recent survey found that 40% of adults admit they pee in the swimming pool.

Sadly, people who do not clean well, back there,  after they go to the bathroom also can cause pool contamination. On top of that, a survey found that nearly 24% of adults say they would enter a public pool within one hour of having diarrhea.

The problem with all this in addition to the nastiness and diseases that can be spread is that pee, poo, sweat, dirt, skin cells and personal care products like deodorant and makeup can chemically react with the chlorine in a pool and make it harder to do the job of disinfecting the water.  These reactions can also cause compounds that irritate your eyes, skin, nose and breathing passages.

So, there is a solution.  How about a private pool?  Given that gasoline prices are at record highs, how about a San Angelo Staycation in an AirBNB with your own private pool?  Fortunately, you're in luck, although we could only find three.

1) Quiet Lone Star Retreat with pool.  This incredible 3 bedroom 2 bath home has an amazing pool. It rents for $196 a night and it has a view of San Angelo State Park.  There are some August dates still available if you move fast. The pool is incredible, but it is not recommended for children, as there is no fence.
