So this is my first post here. I attempted a search on this topic and read the basic pool cleaning stuff, but didn't find my answer. I apologize in advance if this has already been covered:
I'm a new house owner and new pool maintainer. We decided to drain the water out because the CYA was around 200 ppm (the pool had been neglected for who knows how long before we bought the house). So now the water's back in and I want to clean the DE filter thoroughly before circulating (when I opened it, much of the DE was green... I'm assuming that's bad news).
So I soaked the grids overnight in this and I hope to put the filter back together this evening, put DE back in it, and then start getting the water chemistry back in shape.
My question is, where can I dispose of this cleaner? It doesn't say on the bottle. I live in SoCal and we have fairly strict regs about dumping stuff. I just want to be sure I'm not poisoning my ground / being a bad neighbor. I assume this is just some sort of detergent, but detergents come in many levels of "not good for drains."
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
