Salt water pool

Dear expert team,
In summer, we would like to rent a holiday home with salt water pool in Mallorca. Can our children (both CF, 4 and 6 years old, so far pseudomonas-free) use this pool without any danger as far as infection with pseudomonas is concerned?

Dear questioner,
Unfortunately, especially smaller pools can literally be a breeding ground for P. aeruginosa. Hygiene experts have seen filters covered with thick green slimy biofilms which had caused skin diseases in healthy swimmers. CF individuals should avoid to use such a small pool at all events if the hygienic quality is not explicitely secured by a recent test.
I hope to have been helpful with this answer.
