    Soap Foam in Pool

    Just cleaned very dirty tiles in spa/pool with an acid based tile cleaner. Tiles turned out great but when I started the pool back up it created massive foam from spa to pool. Looks like a gigantic snowcone. Any remedies?

    Shocking your pool should take care of it I would think. First make sure that you pH doesn't need adjusting and then shock it.

    Thank you for your suggestions. I shocked the pool and let it run over night. Water was clear and foam free.
