Why Is This Olympics Pool Green?


THE DIVING POOL AT THE RIO OLYMPICS
HAVE TURNED GREEN, AND FOR A WHILE NO ONE KNEW WHY. IT TURNS
OUT WE MIGHT HAVE AN EXPLANATION. FIRST LET’S TAKE A
LOOK AT A FEW PICTURES THAT SHOW YOU HOW GREEN THE DIVING POOLS HAD BECOME. PEOPLE WERE TWEETING
ABOUT THIS, OF COURSE PEOPLE HAVE THEIR OWN HYPOTHESES AS TO WHY THIS WAS HAPPENING. THOSE
BEHIND THE RIO OLYMPICS DIDN’T HAVE ANY ANSWERS WHEN THIS
BECAME A STORY.>>WE WON’T GO IN THE WATER,
BUT IT’S SAFE. DO YOU KNOW WHAT I THOUGHT WHEN I SAW THIS? I
THOUGHT YOU KNOW IN COMMUNITY POOLS WHEN SOMEONE PEES AND THEY
HAVE THAT DYE THAT CHANGES COLOR WHEN IT COMES IN
CONTACT WITH URINE. THAT’S WHAT I THOUGHT OF.>>DO YOU GUYS PEE IN THE POOL?>>I CANNOT.>>I PEE IN THE OCEAN.>>I CAN’T EVEN DO THAT.>>I CAN’T EVEN PEE IN THE OCEAN.>>THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE PEE
SHY, AND I AM ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE. I CANNOT PEE ANYWHERE UNLESS I AM IN A SAFE VAULT.>>SO YOU AND R.KELLY CANNOT
HAVE A RELATIONSHIP.>>ABSOLUTELY NOT. I WOULD BE LIKE R.KELLY, YOU KNOW I CAN’T
DO THIS. PLUS I’M NOT A 14-YEAR-OLD GIRL. YOU KNOW HOW SOME PEOPLE CAN
PISS THEMSELVES WHEN THEY ARE DRUNK?>>
I HAVE NEVER DONE THAT, HASAN.>>I THINK THAT’S BECAUSE THEY
ARE NOT AS PEE SHY OR THEY CAN PEE IN POOLS OR OCEANS AND PEE
WILLY-NILLY WHEN THEY ARE DRUNK.>>THAT WAS A TANGENT.>>I HAVE NEVER DONE THAT.>>LET’S TALK ABOUT WHY THE POOL
AT THE OLYMPICS IS GREEN. SO, INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH SUMMER
ALLEGING THAT THE CHEMICALS ARE DISINFECTANTS, AND SO IF THE
DISINFECTANTS AREN’T AT PROPER LEVELS THEN WOULDN’T IT BE
UNSAFE? SO FAR THOSE WHO HAVE COMPETED SAID THEY HAVEN’T
SUFFERED ANY TYPE OF HEALTH ISSUES, SO I GUESS THAT’S ALL
THAT REALLY MATTERS.>>EXCEPT FOR THE THIRD NIPPLE
THAT EVERYONE SUSPICIOUSLY STARTED GROWING ON THE RUSSIAN POLO TEAM. BUT THAT COULD BE DOPING.>>IT JUST STRIKES ME AS SO ODD
ñ IT SEEMS LIKE SUCH A FORESEEABLE AND FIXABLE ISSUE TO SPRING UP LIKE THAT. FOR A WHILE
PEOPLE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON.>>IS IT THOUGH? LOOK AT THE
TRACK RECORD OF RIO AND THE OLYMPICS. FROM DAY ONE IT HAS
BEEN RIDDLED WITH CONTROVERSY, EVERYONE IS CONSTANTLY SAYING
THE OLYMPIC COMMITTEE IS INCREDIBLY CORRUPT AND SHOULD OF NEVER HAD THIS IN RIO, A
COMMUNITY RIDDLED BY INCOME INEQUALITY. CUTTING BACK THE
POLICE FORCE, NOT HAVING ENOUGH SECURITY, THERE’S JUST SO MANY
ISSUES OF HAVING THE OLYMPICS IN RIO.>>THE ZIKA VIRUS.>>BOB COSTAS, DON’T GET PINK
EYE LIKE HIM. IT’S JUST ABSURD
THAT THEY HAD IT HERE IN THE FIRST
PLACE AND THE WAY THEY TRIED TO CLEAR IT UP BY HAVING ADRIANA
LIMA AND THE OTHER WOMEN BE A PART OF IT. LOOK AT THE
BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, THAT IS WHAT WE DO HERE, DON’T LOOK AT ALL OF
THE PROVERTY.>>I’M TALKING ABOUT IN A VACUUM
OF ANY CITY HOSTING THE OLYMPICS. A POOL IS A VERY REASONABLE
FACILITY TO MONITOR.>>THE INFRASTRUCTURE IS SO
CRIPPLED THAT IT IS FORESEEABLE ñ I’M SURPRISED WORSE THINGS HAVEN’T OCCURRED ALREADY.>>RIGHT, BUT IT
SHOWS ITSELF AS A SYMPTOM OF A LARGER ISSUE THAT WE ARE SEEING
WITH THE REAL OLYMPICS.

  1. No public pool in America would be allowed to operate like that. Chlorine, goddamit, it has no Chlorine. The green is Algae and Cyanobacteria.

  2. Green water in pools is really common and is usually either algae or metal deposits in the water. Testing kits for water in pools checks things like pH, chlorine, alkalinity and calcium. There is no "green-ness" check. I find that this kind of thing happens especially after you completely fill the pool from scratch from the tap water. When a pool is deep enough it will look green. Fun fact – If you take a clear glass and scoop up as much water as you can from the pool and look at it, it will look completely clear.

    Here is something else for everyone to know including you, Hasan – there is no such thing as "urine detecting dye" http://www.snopes.com/science/poolpiss.asp it is literally an urban myth introduced to children at a young age for obvious reasons.

    You guys are spewing nonsense 🙂

  3. its pretty obvious what the issue is to anyone who has owned a pool in their backyard. it can easily happen when the chemical ratios are unbalanced and can take a while to fix but the water definitely isnt unsafe it just looks gross

  4. Hasan, you are single handedly spoiling the credibility of the entire TYT network with your fashion choices. You have GOT to be kidding with that shirt.

  5. holy shit who the fuk is the new guy he's so lame he talk like some dumb high school kid plz take him off the show

  6. hell nah if I was a diver I would ask those people why tf that shit green….I would not dive in that shit I would to see what would happen if someone else dives lol

  7. Hasan is referring to a technology that simply doesn't exist. It's a myth that people made up to scare kids. The acid and general composition of urine isn't that different than transpiration. If such a technology existed to expose piss offenders in pools, it would be incredibly unreliable.

  8. Pleeeeassseeeee get rid of Hassan. I'm really open to other hosts. But he is just… Can't stand it 🙁

  9. Actually the tap water here in large quantities comes out a few shades lighter than that ( I fill a large hot tub at the YMCA weekly). It clears up after we add a lot of acid and chlorine to the tap water. It's safe when it comes out green, and looks perfectly clear in small quantities, but the PH balance isn't perfect. The chemicals correct the imbalance to help keep it clean. Also, if you turn the water off for an extended period of time the patina in the pipes can come out when the water surges through them once you turn it on again, which would cause a darker olive green color.

  10. Municipal pools don't use a urine reacting dye, it's a old wives' tale to get kids to not pee in the pool. Any chemical that would react with urine would also react with sweat and the other chemicals omnipresent on everyone's skin..

  11. Not unlike Flint with the water crisis, the civil servants in charge of taking care of that pool are probably not competent.

  12. This isn't hard, I ran a park district pool for 15 years. NEVER had a problem like that

    And these are the "professionals"

    And to think, this is the place that "beat out" Chicago for these only pics

    It's really not that hard to keep a pool in balance. In fact, the bigger the pool (higher capacity) the easier it is

  13. you know that nice guy that learned to  be a bit of a dick to get some. the nephew is the opposite. he is the egocentric type that oozes I'm a total douche. but pretends he is a nice guy. and I agree when I see him I just stop watching.

  14. I wish we had the color changing stuff but sadly who ever told you that lied. I was a life guard at many pools and I've always asked about it and have never seen it go down

  15. K wait… water is not blue or green so there should never be a color change since water has no color, it's clear. The reason the water is blue is obviously because the pool walls are blue, right?
    So if the pool looks green the water is most likely yellow since blue + yellow = green. If the water was really bright green like it looks in the picture, once it entered the blue pool it would look brown, not green.

    So in a large white bucket or pool what color would that water be? I doubt it would look bright green like that, I'm pretty sure it would look yellow.

  16. yeah thanks colegue FINA is the international swimming federation, not THE PEOPLE WHO ORGANIZE THIS EVENT as she is saying.

  17. can you guys get the total toolbag in the middle off camera…he literally just wanted to hear himself talk what a moron and tell him to be a grown man and buy a dress shirt for God's sake you are a journalist, not a rodeo clown bro

  18. ok they didn't know the reason for why the water became green but they were sure it was ok? until you know what is causing the color change there is no way you can be sure it's safe…

  19. it is an algae, algae are safe, they are in the ocean, there is more algae in the ocean than there is water, ever died from swimming in the ocean?

  20. Man, that dude in the middle is annoying. He tries to be funny, but just comes off way wrong. Nothing even remotely witty, and he ads absolutely nothing to the topic.

  21. I am a competitive swimmer, and for a whole week our pool was green and we still had to train. It was fine and it didn't affect our health at all

  22. he said that a guy getting pink eye was a golden moment also he said everyone thinks about the women in brazil boy were talking about the olympic pool in the olympics

  23. I'm from Brazil, you overestimate us. We are a mess, we are shocked that there was no major disaster with the olympics.

  24. The 'pee marker' in public pools is an urban myth. Leave it to TYT to perpetuate lies weve known were lies, since we were 12… and get THAT wrong – it turns red/pink, not green.

  25. I think US and Europe has a tendency to critize every competition which they aren't hosting. See u in LA 2028
