    Re: baby oil

    A little baby oil in the pool is not a big deal. The oil will float and tend to collect in the skimmer. Eventually chlorine will break it down.

    I wouldn't expect it to affect the robot, though if the debris bag got oily it could reduce the flow rate which could affect wall climbing.
