Unfortunately I purchased 2 large 116 oz. bottles of Chlorox Splash-less bleach thinking it was just a splash-less pour spout. I realize now there is another chemical mixed in it to thicken it, and should not be used in the pool.
After opening last week I emptied both bottles on consecutive days into my 22,000 gallon vanishing edge pool, and also poured some directly into my vanishing edge basin (3' x 15' x 4' deep). The next day the basin was filled with foam. There is no foam issues in the main pool area at all. I have probably scooped the foam out of the basin over 30 times (because I am OCD about the pool). Anyway, it's been a week now and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. I've read on several other threads here, that after 3-5 days it should dissipate. I cleaned the filters and that hasn't helped. Should I just be more patient? Will it definitely go away eventually? Should I toss in some anti foam liquid meant for hot tubs into the basin? Should I drain out some of the basin and refill with my water? I really hate doing that because I'm on a well and even though I have a decent home filter system, my well has heavy iron content that can sneak through. Any advice is greatly appreciated. This site has been a Godsend for me and you guys are so incredibly helpful to everyone. Thanks. Jeff
