This incident was at a commercial pool. We also found out that a bottle of Brake Fluid was also dumped in the pool. Pool has cleared up nicely. We added product at 8:30am yesterday and by 6pm it was 90% clear. I had the guards sponge up the oil/fluid as it was drawn into the skimmers to help minimize the amount of contaminant going into the filtration system. This is the first time I've used the product for treating pool with motor oil dumped in it. We are very happy with the results.Megan N. in Maryland
Note: Anionic polymers used in many metal and scale control products should not be dosed to swimming pool water at the same time as water clarifiers. Cloudy water, precipitation and reduced product effectiveness may result. Wait 24 hours between additions.
Directions for use:
This product is designed for use in properly balanced pool water.
For optimum results, add product when sanitizer level is below 5ppm and wait 48 hours to shock the pool.
Pour Pool First Aid into the pool water evenly around the edge of the pool at a rate of 2oz per 1,000 gallons. One capful treats 2,000 gallons.
It is recommended to keep the circulation running for 48 hours after application.
Do not shock during this 48 hour time period.
Recommendations: Use every two days until the pool is crystal clear. Apply directly to waterline to quickly remove any existing waterline buildup.
Important: If water temperature is below 70ºF, Pool First Aid will work more slowly so allow more time for results.
