My entire family came down with a rash last night / this morning. After doing some research and talking with a doctor we found out what happened. We all have Hot Tub Rash or Pseudomonas Dermatitis / Folliculitis.
My husband has been testing the water and on Friday the chlorine and ph level were low but not out of the normal range. He said he was not concerned and we went swimming. The weather has been very hot here and the water felt like a hot tub. Lesson now learned not only do we need to buy a better testing kit, but we need to keep the levels up better and especially when the water is hot.
If we decide to keep the pool running, how do we make sure the bacteria is completely gone? Do we need to clean all the pool toys? How do we get it back to 100%?
Edit to add that I just purchased the TF-100 test kit.
We really appreciate any help and suggestions with this issue!
