Say I want to gather statistics on above ground pool ownership in the states. Is there some way to find and aggregate this kind of retail information? [more inside]

I have rosacea which is kept in check with daily applications of MetroGel (metronidazole). I also like swimming as exercise. The problem is that swimming in a chlorinated pool leaves my nose area bright red, almost like a chemical burn. It takes at least 2 weeks of extra care on my part to reduce this redness. What are some things I can do to protect my face when swimming? Or will I have to give up swimming altogether? (Note that other types of exertion, such as jogging or cycling, do not result in this type of redness)

In Olympic diving events, why are there a couple of streams of water converging on the surface where the divers hit the pool?
