what kind of pool do you swim in ?
not in any pool I've been in

give it to me baby

It's hardly possible.

In a way-YES

True Blue
If it has the proper chlorine content, NO.

gareth a
yes if your infected ha ha lol!!!!!!!!!!!!

I believe clorine kills the virus.
Also sun and light may kill this virus.

This virus likes a dark,moist,warm,environment.

It's unlikely you would contract herpes from a swimming pool. Pools are typically disinfected with chlorine to kill off bacteria and other microbial organisms, as well as burn off bather wastes (oils, sloughed skin, etc.). There are a number of chemical parameters that are monitored in pools to ensure the pools are safe for swimming - the amount of chlorine found in the pool water is one such parameter. Research from a 1997 study shows that a level of 1.0 mg/L chlorine is sufficient to kill off the herpes simplex 1 virus within a half hour at a normal pH of approximately 7. This would be similar to conditions found in a pool. Pools are usually required to maintain a chlorine residual of 1 mg/L (public pools often have an even higher residual as an added margin of safety). So, it's unlikely that under normal pool conditions the herpes virus would survive long enough in the presence of chlorine to infect anyone.
