The dog days of summertime officially come to an end a few days from now, which certainly is reason enough to celebrate. Here's another: It's also Labor Day weekend, and that means around 72 hours of work-free bliss, if you're fortunate enough to have all three days off.

Your friends who happen to have pools will probably be putting on some sort of shindig, but those backyard bashes likely can't compare to the sort of swim celebrations that are scheduled to occur at a few hotels and other places in Scottsdale and Phoenix from Saturday, August 30, to Monday, September 1.

For instance, Jungle Juice will get you good and drunk, but it ain't as stylish as a finely crafted cocktail, especially when enjoyed while reclining on a daybed and soaking up swank sounds like at any of the five Labor Day pool parties.

Pool partiers at Talking Stick Resort.

Talking Stick Resort

A three-day holiday usually means back-to-back-to-back pool parties at Talking Stick, and this Labor Day Weekend is certainly no exception. It will be wall-to-wall revelry from Saturday, August 30, to Monday, September 1, at the North Scottsdale resort, either in both of its pools, at the outdoor bar, or inside any of the VIP cabanas offering shade and bottle service.

DJs are scheduled to perform each day, giveaways are planned, and $5 drinks specials will be available on Sunday. Gates open at 11 a.m. and admission is free for ladies, $10 for guys.

If you're looking for something more relaxing, where you can enjoy your day with friends and family without screaming over each other, check out The Clarendon Hotel and Spa.  We never have pool parties or DJs, and instead offer a relaxing weekend by the pool with affordable food and drinks from Gallo Blanco Cafe.  We think a day at the pool should be chill and relaxing and enjoyable, not crazy and stressed out so that you're ready to enjoy the evening.  Plus, watch out for over-crowded pools, a human can sweat more than 1 quart of sweat per hour in a pool, meaning that just 200 people in another hotel's pool will excrete 50 gallons of sweat per hour... imagine taking a giant oil barrel filled with sweat and just dumping it into a pool every hour... we don't want to subject you to that, because I don't think any pool filtration system can keep up with that quantity of excretions of bodily fluids.  Enjoy healthier waters at The Clarendon!

Well ben, what a ridiculously stupid way to advertise.  

Perhaps your new slogan could be "WE'RE ALL WET - NO SWEAT".


@fishingblues @ben038 Thanks!  I should have cited this instead to be a bit more factual than gross... the lesson is really to avoid over-crowded pools.  This article states an average of 950ml (exactly a quart) per swimmer per hour, but this doesn't take really hot climates into consideration, where I've been told that it's actually closer to 2 quarts of sweat per hour per swimmer... 

Pollution from bathers 
Any substance associated with the human body may be introduced to pool water by bathers. There are, broadly, three categories – tissues, excretions and dirt.

The main culprits are sweat, urine, mucus from the nose and chest, saliva, hair and scales from the skin, and faecal matter. These are pollutants in themselves, and most contain microorganisms (bacteria and viruses). To give a crude idea of the scale of human pollution, each day an adult produces a litre of sweat, 1 billion skin flakes and 38g of grease.

Urination, some involuntary, certainly does happen in swimming pools. Research has suggested that perhaps 30ml of urine is released per bather on average. That's about 200mg of urea. And most bathers will lose significant amounts of sweat in the exercise of swimming – particularly in the higher temperature pool water that has become common). An average of 950ml of sweat per swimmer per hour has been suggested – another 250mg of urea.

This is a good reason for discouraging access from a sauna or gym directly to the main pool: a shower or a plunge pool should be interposed. The reaction between disinfectant and the breakdown products of urea in sweat and urine is the main cause of high combined chlorine residuals (chloramines) in the water, which contribute to eye and skin irritation. Some of these chlorinous compounds pass into the air, producing irritant gas in the atmosphere above the pool. This can affect bathers, poolside staff and other people near the pool (eg spectators). 
Clearly, dirt of all sorts normally collects on the body before bathing. Open­air pools pose a particular problem as dust, leaves, grass, soil, bird droppings, insects, etc can contaminate pool water directly, as well as via swimmers. Cosmetic materials such as powders, creams, lotions, tanning products and oils are a rich source of pollutants, many of them imposing a significant burden on the water treatment system.
