    Itchy feeling....please helppppp!!!!


    I've recently got my pool back to normal (swimable condition) from green algae....We have swim two times now, and after each time the following condition occurred:
    No visible rashes or red marks, but I felt itchy, but it's a different kind of itch. It's a stingy itch, like I have fiberglass fibers (attic insulation type) all over my body. No red eyes...just that annoying itch.....The pool guy said all chemicals are at the level where they should be. PPPPPllLLLLeease help.

    Pool store numbers are never correct. You have a test kit, it comes with easy to follow instructions.

    Please test the water yourself and report.

    And yes, I've just bought the TF-100, but have not got a chance to learn how to use it.
    The words you post don't help at all. Test results is what we are looking for to help you.

    Something is out of whack. A TFP balanced pool will not cause any skin issues ever. We spend hours in our pool every day.
