Eric, you say:
"Hot tub folliculitis" is caused by the presence of the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which thrives in water at temperature between 37C and 40C, or 98.6F to 104F. As one soaks in water inhabited by this bacterium, one's hair follicles open in response to the warm temperatures, allowing the bacteria in. The longer one soaks, the more bacteria come in, and if you soak long enough you allow enough bacteria in to cause a mild skin irritation.

>>>That makes sense to me and may be true, but then why is it that over the last 14 years of soaking at Deep Creek H. S. and taking long soaks in the pools that I never experienced a rash???? What is so different now as compared towat back when??? Didn't the bacertia exist years ago to???
__________________________

Then Eric you say:
Obviously the use of toxics such as chlorine or bleach is out of the question at Deep Creek. How about a diluted vinegar solution as an environmentally friendly and effective alternative? I would suggest that the pools which reach temperatures of 98F-104F at this time of year, which would include the Anniversary Pool, the Womb and the Serenity Pool, be drained occasionally and that their surfaces be thoroughly scrubbed with the diluted vinegar.

>>>Then explain to me Eric, why cleaning the pools with vingear is so much safer or environment friendly over, store purchased Bleach???? I do not mean chlorine for swimming pools!!!!!!!!!!

___________________________

Have you ever been to Saline Warm Springs? They clean the pools there with store purchased bleach and all drains into the fish pond where many many koy fish live and never seem to be bothered by the all that bleach. Bleach is not as toxic as you say it is and the fish at that pond in Saline Valley are proof of it.
