    Swimming with a G-tube

    Hi All,
    It's been a while since I posted or read posts because of being away at the hospital.
    Last season my family took care of the pool according to a manual I had prepared for them.
    Only closing and opening were done by pros. I'm coming back home soon and I'll be still having my G-tube.
    I wonder if I can swim with my G-tube. Obviously the pool will be Cl sanitized as it's always has been. Please keep in mind that me too can use google but I need some reliable sources regarding the subject of my post. I hope chem geek will give it some thought.
    Thank you very much.
    This is my ticket for Heaven (when all's working..) :
    22k Gal gunite IGP, 38 SF Anthony DE filter, 1 HP Hayward Super Pump
    380k BTU Raypak Natural Gas Heater (Model RP405A) and solar cover
    8 gal Liquidator w/ 12% bleach, Dolphin Diagnostic Advantage robotic cleaner. 3800 ppm salt, 50 ppm borates.

    I think that is a question for your doctor to answer.

    I agree. I wouldn't mess around with a G-tube without consulting a doctor.

    Ditto. That's a question for a medical professional to answer. Their answer will probably be similar to what they say about taking baths and showers assuming you have chlorinated water.
