The swimming pool at Berkeley High School in Berkeley, Calif., was shut down last Wednesday, after city officials said the level of chemicals in the water exceeded normal operating conditions, Berkeleyside reported.
The decision was made after parents delivered a letter to the schools principle the day before, expressing concern over the health of students on the water polo team. According to the letter, the players were displaying some disturbing symptoms, such as burning eyes, bleached hair, and even the disappearance of body hair.

The high pH was caused by a defective CO2 tank, CO2 being the gas that buffers (lowers) the pH.

After all, the EPA said it, so it must be true.

“water polo team. “
Nothing is mentioned about how their horses might be affected?
I still don’t understand how they get horses to jump in a pool for this water polo sport I hear about.

Well, considering it is Berzerkly, I would assume that a massive level of chlorine and other chemicals would be a necessity considering the massive amounts of STD’s that are in the area.
