Recently, SwimSpray COO Peter Wong has taken the lead to “Reverse the Ban on Water Bottles at Public Swimming Pools in DC.”
Team SwimSpray trains at the Wilson Aquatic Center in Washington, DC. Recently, the city banned water bottles anywhere on the pool deck because the health inspector classified them as “food.”
Peter filed a petition asking the city to reverse the ban on water bottles, allowing swimmers to hydrate during their workouts, as they did before the ban. The petition is posted on change.org, which allows supporters to join the petition on-line.
Peter explains why he was motivated to act:
“I really hope that we can resolve this fast before the idea to ban water spreads to other pools. Because, if that happens, I fear what it will take to change the policy.”
SwimSpray was invented by Dr. Andrew Chadeayne, a former Princeton University swimmer and chemistry Ph.D. from Cornell University. Tired of smelling like chlorine after his swimming workouts, Andrew set out remove chlorine from hair and skin ( SwimSpray works where so many other chlorine removal products (e.g., swimmers’ shampoos) have failed previously because SwimSpray’s all-natural vitamin C based formula breaks this bond, neutralizing the chlorine, and allowing it to be washed away with your favorite soap or shampoo.
