I was recently at my grandsons and noticed that his pool was green, I wanted to refil the pool and clean it but my daughters boyfriend would not let me, he said that my 6 year old grandson could swim in that water and that it would not hurt him. I know that this cant be true. My grandson recently had to go to the doctor because he was having breathing problems with his asthma, which had gotten worse in the last few weeks. I was just wondering if this could be a result of them lletting him swim in this water. I did take some water out of the pool in a water bottle and the water itself was just slightly green, but the pool was very green. If anyone can tell me what the health risks of swimming in this water are I would be grateful. Thank you Deb
