    New to forum Hello

    This is our 4th year of owning our pool and everything has been great except my wife has a sensitivity issue with chlorine i believe. Last year after reading from this forum we switched to the TFP method and while we probably had the nicest water in the neighborhood my wife would still breakout every time. No one else not even the young children. Does anybody have advice for a solution how about maybe switching to bromine I've read that may help. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    Welcome to TFP!

    Could you post full test results? Chlorine sensitivity is fairly rare and it's usually something else going on.

    What kind of a break out? Rash?

    Welcome to TFP!

    Yes, please post current test results, especially CYA. There should be no rash with properly balanced water per TFP recommendations.

    Re: New to forum Hello

    We have not opened our pool yet this year so I dont have any current results. But over the last few years and reading this forum I've tried to become very particular in our water chemistry. Our cya has always been 50 and ph 7.4 - 7.6 however my wife still always gets a rash every where her swimsuit touches her the day after she swims. Any thoughts
