    Concern about a little accident with reagent R-0013

    Hello everyone and Happy Fourth of July!

    I, by mistake, added to the pool water about 1 or 2 oz, maybe 3? of reagent R-0013.

    Do I need to worry about it or it is not a big issue since the amount was just a little?

    Is it safe to use the pool?

    My pool is 15k gallons.

    Thank you in advance!

    3oz in 15,000 gallons should have little effect. Here the MSDS: http://www.taylortechnologies.com/MSDSS/0013.PDF
    While the MSDS does say it can cause irritation, remember that's undiluted. In a 15k gallon pool you have effectively diluted 3oz of R-0013 80,000 (80k) times.

    How are your test results? How's the water look? If your test results are within TFP recommended guidelines, it's safe to swim.

    A few ounces should not pose any risk.
