Cato Pool Manager Amanda Shanklin is seeing some better behavior these days at her pool now that patrons have to pay up.
"I cant really describe how much it's changed for the good in words because you would have to see it to really believe it."
Shanklin says people who stopped coming to the pool are back thanks to the changes.
But this change of tides has other city pools filling up. Jemere Hall says he won't pay to swim.
"Nobody goes to that pool anymore because they are starting to charge two dollars and now everybody else is trying to find the free pools."
Sunday he was swimming at the North Charleston Pool. Which is still free. So are three other city of Charleston pools.
