A number of concerned mothers warn parents of the dangers of & # 39; sandpaper & # 39; -like puddles after their children bleed and were in pain after a dive.

Katie Dowling's two-year-old daughter got dozens of bloody scratches from the barren floor of the pool at the Burpengary Regional Aquatic Leisure Center near Brisbane.

Mrs. Dowling's sister took her children to swimming lessons on Monday morning when the toddler let her legs graze on the surface of the pool.

& # 39; My daughter sat on the edge of the small pool and slid down to go inside. During the trial, her legs were scratched, bleeding, and screaming in pain, & # 39; she said.

Katie Dowling said that after recent renovations the new surface of the children's pool has & # 39; the consistency of sandpaper & # 39;

& # 39; She did nothing wrong. She went into the pool like any child of that size would. & # 39;

The worried mother said that after recent renovations the new surface of the children's pool has & # 39; the consistency of sandpaper & # 39; on the sides.

& # 39; I believe that (the water center) needs to review their choice of surface in the children's area to prevent further injury, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; My daughter is still in a lot of pain and I hope her legs will heal quickly. & # 39;

& # 39; She just kept sticking out her legs and said & # 39; ouch, ouch & # 39;, & # 39; she told 7 News.

But Mrs. Dowling's daughter is not the first child to have injured the public swimming pool since the recent $ 5.4 million upgrade.

Vicky Cozens told Daily Mail Australia that her seven-year-old daughter was in pain after falling on the bottom of the pool in April.

& # 39; It all happened within seconds, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; She slipped into the shallow end. We have been there many times in the years before the renovation and had no injuries.

& # 39; What they have ever used is very nasty & # 39 ;.

The children of Michelle Doyle Kennedy also had a similar experience in the public swimming pool.

& # 39; This is exactly what happened to all children! From there they also have cuts in their arms and legs, & she said.

The regional council of Moreton Bay reopened the pool in February this year after major renovations.

A council spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that anti-slip surfacing has been used to prevent fall-related injuries.

& # 39; We understand the concerns that have been raised with the non-slip surface used at the pool & # 39 ;, was the statement.

& # 39; Municipal officials talked to the girl's mother and promised to review the surface type used. & # 39;

Mrs Dowling suggested that the municipality set up warning signs and change the surface to something less rough.

A council spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that they are investigating the coarseness of the Burpengary regional aquatic leisure center in Queensland
