    Help with concrete sealer on pool surface issue

    My PB sealed our concrete/coping with this stuff. He told me that a bit will get on the pool water, but the skimmer will take it out in a few hours.

    Well of course, 3 days later and I still can see remnants of this (MSD Attached). We have been skimming manually and automatically since and can't seem to get it all.

    few questions.

    1) is it safe to swim in
    2) can we put the solar cover back on (went from 90 to 82 in 2 cool nights)
    3) any idea how to get the rest of this "out" of the water...PB says to be patient...but not sure I will ever get all of it.

    Or any other ideas/questions...just let me know.

    Keeping skimming. I assume it's floating so find something that will absorb it from the top like an old dust mop. Elevate the FC level to double what is normal for your pool. Run the pump 24/7 and see what that does after a day or so.

    I would call or better yet email the manufacturer for their input on whether it is safe to swim or put the cover back on.
    POOL: Intex ultra new in 2014 (32 x 16 x 52) (seasonal; on concrete pad covered with 1.5" extruded or whatever foam insulation sheets - ugly, but comfy); added a through-wall skimmer; I add salt for feel. EQUIPMENT: Pentair SuperFlo pump (1HP, 2SPD); Pentair cartridge filter (200 sq. ft); Pentair MasterTemp natural gas heater (400,000 btu) Climate/Location: Eastern Nebraska

    Good idea, I have a vm into them, of course you never get a live person.

    I would leave the cover off to help oxidize the material, regardless of what they say.
