    Fluccolant overdose

    Hi!

    This is my first post to this forum.

    A concrete pool has been overdosed with fluccolant and the water became cloudy. Could you please help me with this situation? In which way can i make the cloudiness disappear?

    Welcome to tfp, miltos

    We don't generally recommend flocculants, and what happened to you is one of the reasons why. I would just vacuum to waste anything that is settled on the bottom then keep your pump/filter running 24/7 and brush the pool a couple of times daily. If it doesn't start clearing up in a day or so, then post a full set of test numbers: http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-...efore_you_post

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I had already increased the filtration working hours and observed significant improvement in a couple of days.

    Was the improvement due to the intensive recirculation-filtration, or would it have occured anyway (after some time)?
