So the water gets icky because it is a recirculating fountain.  I guess it recirculates because it would be extravagant to run fresh water through all the time.  Is there is a drain or overflow? Where does it go?  When there is plenty of water in the reservoir, like now, and the weather gets hot enough that people want to be in the water, could it not be set to run on fresh water, or to admit fresh water at a rate that will replace the water a few times a day, instead of adding chemicals?

Even so if you avoid getting it in your mouth and eyes and wash your hands before you eat, you are quite unlikely to become ill.
