One of the many theories as to why the Olympic diving pool water turned green is that when a special chemical is added, the water turns green is someone pees in it!: Any chance this is the explanation?

  • Yes, there is a good chance that this is the explanation for why the Olympic pool turned green

    Yes, there is a good chance that this is the explanation for why the Olympic pool turned green. There is a good chance that a chemical added to the water could react to pee. Furthermore, divers have said that they often pee when they hit the water when diving. Thus, this is a good explanation.

  • People can be unclean

    People can be unclean and do unsanitary things. I wouldn't put it past any Olympian that they would urinate in the pool at the competition. It would be good to have this chemical in more pools in case this actually works. This would put more shame in people so that they do not use pools as bathrooms.

  • Onon ono nononononn

    Old pipes used copper, brazil has old pipes that is contaminating the water. Thus RIO should fix their pipes, preferably before a huge festival.

    Either that its algea in the water. I would imagine the water being too toxic to form green tides, but eh maybe. The color is too clear for it to be algea though.

  • A cemichal reaction with urine did not turn the water green in the Olympic diving pool.

    It would take a comically high amount of pee to color such a large volume of water, even if the chemical reacted in such a manner. However, pools worldwide are not turning green, which suggests that Rio is the only place this mystery chemical is used, which seems highly unlikely.

  • This is a stupid theory.

    The entire pool would not turn green if somebody peed in it. The urine would be quickly diluted, only the surrounding water next to the offending swimmer would change colors. Do people not use their head to think with anymore? My five-year old son could have figured that one out.
