Hello @steeldove, what I worry about is the bleach and othe chemicals used in the water. Are those safe for neurophaty ? Thank you !!

Not sure what effect chemicals could have on neuropathy. Most pools nowadays use bromine, not chlorine, so there's no longer that "pool smell" you may remember from days past. I've been committed to my deep-water workout for the past 15 years, and while I can no longer hike or walk seriously, I still can get a full body workout in the water.
Thank you for the info. That’s Good to know, i will try to Find a pool close home and see if that helps.
