    The potential issue of using low-splash

    I have been a TFP user/follower for a couple of years and swear by it. This has been the hardest year getting our pool clear and i think i just made it a whole lot worse. I bought 10 gallons of bleach the other day and didnt notice that 2 of them were the LESS SPLASH BLEACH until i was pouring one in after a day in the pool. It says its not for sanitizing or disinfecting and contains 1% sodium hydroxide (caustic soda or lye). I had added 3/4 gallon before panic struck. What issues should i expect if any? And what can i do to counteract those issues? Thanks ahead of time.

    You will probably see some foaming and/or bubbles on the surface for a few days. This is caused by the thickeners but they will break down. You didn't do any damage to the pool, just try to avoid that in the future.
