Playboy Mansion hot tub maintenance unacceptable

A story recently surfaced about a Legionnaires’ disease outbreak at the Playboy Mansion that ended up linked to bacteria found in one of their hot tubs.

There’s no excuse for improper water maintenance, and this incident would not have happened had this vessel received adequate attention in that department. To be sure, devices like a metal ionizer automate the process of water maintenance to a certain extent, but even a proper chlorine level would have prevented this outbreak, regardless of the health hazard presented by chlorine (and bromine) in its own. Whoever was maintaining this tub should be replaced.
