"Groundbreakers" on HGTV? On Saturday morning the show featured a couple spending hundreds of thousands to perfect and landscape their yard, using chemical-free but environmentally friendly products and plants, to help protect their son who has Autism and allergies. They were so excited about their planned pool that had a beach entrance and would NOT USE ANY CHLORINE and wouldn't that be great for their son!....they were thrilled because they didn't want to expose their son to any chlorine and then went on to explain how the copper ionization system did not require ANY CHLORINE and the water IS SO SAFE YOU CAN DRINK IT.
Needless to say I dashed off a polite email to HGTV and the shows producers. If they are concerned about that is admirable but they would be better off with NO pool than to use a ion system alone. I would love to see an update in 5 years to see what happens to that pool.
Arrggh. That really irked me. Talk about Pooliosis Joyce!
