YES: Unprotected sex anywhere puts you at risk for STD. The chemicals in the pool does not offer protection.

It's who, not where: It's who you have sex with that matters, not where it happens. Doing it in a pool doesn't either raise or lower STD risk. Assuming this is a new or unknown partner, it's really dumb to be having sex without a condom.
