I live in New Jersey. Last fall I left my pool open until Thanksgiving. I realized I must have gotten some poison ivy leaves in the water when I got a poison ivy rash after spending some time in the hot tup-spa. When I closed up the pool for the winter I put clorox into the water, thinking it would kill the poison ivy oil. Now this spring, I opened the pool and went into the attached spa. Well, I got the poison ivy rash again. The outbreak is not as bad, I just got the rash and it doesn't itch.

How can I get rid of this oil in the pool? Does anyone have an idea?
