So of course this kind of stuff always happens when I'm away....
Long story short, my wife spilled some motor oil in the pool. Maybe 1/4 cup or so. Not much. She skimmed most of it off I guess. I am away for work for the week so won't be able to deal with it until I get back.
My question is, since the amount wasn't too great, should I bother with getting a product like "Pool first aid" that I saw recommended in one of the other (interestingly enough) threads about motor oil in a pool?
Also, will backwashing be enough to clear out any oil that got in the sand filter?
I am most likely going to be closing my pool within the next couple of weeks, so I need to get this addressed before I do. Even if the bulk of it is out, I just want to make sure any leftover residue won't make it unsafe for my family to swim in.
