Good site, Robert.
Interesting quote from an article on water from a linked (non-commercial) site, h ttp://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/ottaway/dw_home1.htm
About using water from a swimming pool, chlorine combines with any organics in the water to form THM's, trihalomethanes, and are a KNOWN cancer agent. Also algaecides and more may be present. He did say that in an emergency situation people will do whatever is necessary, even if unpalatable, such as drinking from a mud puddle, but generally, swimming pool water should not be a drinking source.

I hear what you are saying re: precautions, but let's remember that water is H2O; two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen, and as such, is very stable under most circumstances. So what we have to do is get it into or keep it in, as close to original packaging as possible.
I'm guessing that most people that have a pool, must have sufficient Sun during some portion of the year in order to justify owning it. This leads me to believe that either boiling with solar, or condensating are probably viable procedures for *canning water* from their swimmimg pool reservoir.
