I am a first time pool owner and am new to all of these chemicals. I got some help from another pool owner that is a friend, so I think I've got everything that I need and am ready to go. But I made a mistake when adding algae guard.
My pool holds 4,500 gallons. I have the "HTH Super algae guard" which was the weaker of the two algae guards they had at Wal-Mart. In my haste to get my pool ready, I made a math error and added far too much. It says to use 4 ounces for 10,000, and I made a mistake and read it as 4 ounces for every 1,000 gallons. So, instead of adding 2 ounces like I should have, I added 16 ounces (yeah, go ahead and laugh at my idiocy )
So, my question is, what should I do? Is it safe to swim anyway? Should I wait a day? A week? Drain it partially and refill it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
