    Really good paper on why jumping into the pool is a much worse idea than the pool deck:

    So... that clip at the end showed fish getting killed, but they don't have pockets of compressible air in their organs. So they died for another reason.

    I know I'm really late to the party with this question, but would it be valid to jump into the pool if the grenade stayed on the land? pretty much the question of how much will the shock-wave dampen before it reaches the sides of the pool.

    The animation showing a cast iron grenade breaking into neat, even square fragments is idealistic and optimistic. In reality many classic grenades fragmented poorly. The British Mills Bomb had a tendency to turn into mostly metallic powder and few effective fragments. This is why, in the 1950s I think, they start experimenting with metallic and plastic grenades filled with ball bearings. The good thing about the bearings is they will behave like bearings before detonation, during detonation and after detonation.

    So the answer is to not be where the grenade went. Throw it in the water and run, or throw it away and dive the water.
