I finally got time to try to open my pool this year, it had been closed for the whole 2 years that I have owned the house, and I have no clue how many years before I bought it. So needless to say the pool was very dark green with a ton of leaves, twigs, pine needles, and who knows what else on the bottom of the pool. I leaf raked a ton of this stuff out, and when it started getting to the point where I wasn't getting much more in my leaf rake, I decided that I would dare to enter the pool. The first time I got in, I was only in there for around 30 minutes, and I seemed just fine when I got out. I took a shower within 10 minutes of getting out. But, on the second time of entering the pool, I spent probably close to 2 hours in the pool trying to rake every last bit of debris out that I could get. Within 2 minutes of getting out of the pool, my legs began itching like crazy. I took a hot shower again within 10 minutes of getting out, and I had to scrub my legs over and over in the shower. I was just wondering if someone could tell me what likely caused the severe itching after getting out of the pool? Just curious.
Thanks for your insight!!!
