It's not impossible. Especially when we are talking about mutations.

But the swimming pool itself, with chlorine and plenty of UV rays from the sun, likelihood of anything happening is very slim.

Still, mucous in the water can be accidentally touched, swallowed and worse from one person to another. And mucous would protect the virus from chlorine and UV rays.
