The temperatures are 109.4- 113, compared to 136.4-140.
Notice that chlorine levels were similar.
If you need to deal with ameobae, you need to think about
iodination. And the hotter water of 140 degrees may have
other "bugs", but I doubt it. When they are out of their regular
habitat, they will be very stressed.
But the temperatures you will have will be optimum for growth.
Consider batch chlorination or iodination.

Someone from another group sent me this which seems to backup your
basic position, but I think more research is in order:
