Ick Problem help!

Hey guys so I have a huge outbreak of Ick in my salt water tanks at work. We are not allowed to treat the tanks with anything ( -_-) This is what ive done so far.
20 Percent water changes on all the tanks
Bleachd and dechorinated all deco
Srubbed all tanks
Raised temp by 1 degree

Is there anything else I can do other than adding chemicals?

PS I think I will be setting up my SW tank this weekend I will def let u all know how it goes. Ty so much for all the advice

from what i've read those are only ways to prevent it, but only anti biotics can treat it
this is a link i've found about how to tell and how to treat various illnesses

Is your work a LFS? Or just a place that has SW tanks?

You're going to have to treat the fish somehow... hyposalinity, as mentioned, is the only thing that will work that won't include chemicals. Antibiotics or raising the temperature will do nothing for saltwater ich.
