    410A In Pool

    Installed my heat pump and the exchanger was cracked in shipping. Caused 410A refrigerant to get into pool. Turned it off immediately. After factory swap out I have a sheen of oil on the surface.
    Is there any way to get the sheen out? Not sure if it will evaporate or not.

    I would try something like a Scum-Ball or Sun Sorb. They are designed to remove oil from the water, and you are probably seeing compressor lubricant.

    R-410A is a gas at room temperature and pressure, so it should not be part of what you are seeing in the pool. In addition to an absorbent material, you might want to use an enzyme based product such as Pool First Aid by Natural Chemistry.
