Dear All,

I am looking for advice. I am a patient with lupus and I would like to swim. I know that water cleaned with chlorine can be a trigger, but can dswimming pools cleaned with different methods be a trigger as well? I have found one inside pool that is cleaned with UV lamp. Would this be safer?

Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you
