I posted this in a reply about the YMCA, then decided that everyone might not see it there, so I thought I'd post it here too.

Since so many of our PA children are also asthma sufferers I thought this was relative information.

I think this was specific to indoor pools - I know I always think it's harder to breath in those places.

I'm glad you brought this up. My six year old has asthma and I have noticed that when we spend the day at the pool - outdoors - her asthma kicks up that night. This is the first summer that I have noticed this.
