and obviously I cant go into my pool!! I´m gonna try and speak to the landflord to see if we can change anything, I believe salt instead of chlorine maybe an option, or theres something on the market that can replace chlorine??? But for now, i´m not happy, I´m very uncomfortable and my skin is unsightly!! I'm having to wear long sleeves and a long skirt and sit under the air con unit!!!!
Sorry to hear you're going through that Jo. I know how much you enjoyed your pool.
Just a thought. When I asked about pool treatments in a post a while back, you wrote that your son had over done it with the chlorine without you knowing and that the results were your daughter with green hair and you with a rash (I think that's what you said). I wonder if this triggered your problem now?!
It's odd that it hasn't come up before as an issue.
Are you testing for PH and Chlorine levels?
Hope it gets sorted soon.
