Austrian Swimmers Told To Shut Their Mouths At Public Pools

Vienna officials say public pools lose 5,000 liters of water a day from swimmers swallowing water, and they can't afford to replace it. From the article: "Replacing that much water also has an environmental as well as financial cost, authorities say, due to the need to chemically treat the water." I can't wait to see what happens when someone tells them about evaporation.

I have been eating at a buffet restaurant which is complaining about people eating too much food, and they're going to run out. My solution to their problem was remarkably similar to your solution. Actually, my "solution" was as solid as your solution is liquid.
