    Way Too Much Algaecide added to above ground pool

    I accidentally added a whole bottle (32 ozs) of algaecide to my pool. What should I do besides don't swim in it until it dissipates?
    I have a round 20' x 48" above ground pool manufactured by polygroup. It has an SFS1000 skimmer unit. It has a vinyl liner. It has metal posts and rim which is rounded (can't clip anything to it).

    Do you have a test kit of any kind? What kind of algaecide was it?

    Welcome to TFP!

    Never add algaecide to your pool again and maintain your pool TFPC style.

    First get a good test kit, Pool School - Test Kits Compared. I use the TF100 from

    When you get it give us some test results and get ready to Pool School - SLAM - Shock Level And Maintain your pool.

    While you wait for your kit have a look at these,
