    Fiberglass in pool?

    Had about 12 people in the pool over the weekend, and 2 of them said they felt irritation, "like splinters" in their skin. It was guessed that it was fiberglass from the pool. Is this common -fiberglass in a pool? Normal that only 2 of many people would experience? Can this be fixed?
    Roman in ground pool (16 x34, 20,400 gallons), cleaned professional every Tuesday, with a leaf skimmer, suction cleaner connected to skimmer via hose and brush. Pool pump is currently set for 6am-1pm daily. Pool is filled with a water hose two times/week for about 40 minutes (my understanding is filling pool isn't under restrictions by my city).

    Assuming that it's not a fiberglass pool, then no it's not common.
    Do you have any scaling in the pool?
    Please post a set of test results and how you got them?

    Before looking at the unlikely, I'd first test your water's pH and Chloramines (CC). They are the largest contributor's to skin irriation.

    Thanks for the replies. Still a pretty new owner and learning all this stuff. No idea if it's a fiberglass pool or not. Feel like an idiot not knowing what my own pool is made of. I'll ask my pool guy and get those pool test results.
