Swimming Pool as Men’s Mikvah


Can a man use an in ground swimming pool for his daily morning mikvah immersion?

also does a man say any bracha or anything else before dipping in a mikvah for daily immersion or before Shabbat/yom tov?



  1. Even though it is preferable to go to a regular men’s Mikveh, nevertheless, it is permissible to immerse in a swimming pool if there are no other alternatives. When a man immerses in a Mikveh, he does not make a Brachah.
