HOUSTON — Prepare to be grossed out.

You know it. I know it. Your kindergartner knows it.

It's one of the 10 Commandments of summer: Thou shalt not pee in the pool!

And be honest, you've done it,  haven't you?

According to data from Travelzoo, a whopping 64 percent of Americans admit to peeing in the pool.

And how about those red eyes you get after a long day of splashing around in the sun? Nope, not caused by water treatment chemicals.

Your irritated eyes are caused by chloramine, a chemical that's created when urine mixes with the chlorine in the pool.

So, keep your fellow swimmers in mind, and drain your tank before diving in!
