The sun, water, and alcohol. I mean, what else is needed for the perfect vacation? These three things alone are why swim-up pool bars at resorts are popular among vacation-goers, yet one TikToker warns people to avoid them at all costs.

It turns out they’re also used as a community bathroom where people are just letting it go with no worries or regard for others, as TikToker Two Food Piggies explains.

“Vacation pro-trip. Do not hang out in the pool where the swim-up bar is,” she says during a vacation in Riu Baja, California. “There were literally intoxicated guests admitting that they were peeing in the pool here.”

She went on to say, “one girl didn’t understand why some people were leaving the pool to use the washroom.”

And if that wasn’t disgusting enough, people are admitting to using pools as toilets in the comment section.

“Real pro tip, be the first to do it. Chess, not checkers,” one person commented.

Another person agreed, stating, “all swim-up bars are toilets.”

But Isn’t There Urine In All Pools?

There are a lot of commenters disagreeing with the post. The main objection, of course, is that there is chlorine in the water. The other point people are making? People urinate in all pools.

While that’s true, consider that context matters, as Two Food Piggies explains.

“People sit there for four-to-six hours without leaving and consuming alcoholic beverages. They don’t really need to go anywhere. They want to save their spot at that pool there.”

She compares the few dozens of people at the swim-up pool bar to the less crowded pools where people go in for a few minutes and then leave.

“The example is, would you rather be in a pool where 20 to 30 people are peeing in? Or would you rather go in a pool where two-to-five people are peeing in?”

The answer is neither, but if we have to choose, the latter any day.
