    HELP! Concrete Sealer got into pool

    Hi all,

    Ive been lurking for quite sometime now learning a lot about our new pool and water chemistry but now I feel I have a big issue. My IDIOT pool deck contractor sealed our deck without covering the pool. I bunch of over spray of sealant landed in the pool and created a plastic like film. I've tried to get as much as I can out with a net but there is still a good amount of material on top of the water and suspended in the water as well. It looks like little bits of clear plastic. Do I need to drain the pool? Will Chlorine eventually break down the sealant? Its a VOC 100 compound, and I dont know what that exactly means but its freaking me out. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in Advanced

    Hard to say without knowing what is in it, but if it is an epoxy sealant I suspect your filter will catch it in enough time

    If it's mobile (i.e - not sticking to anything) - just get a leaf rake and rake it out - if it's too small for that - then just keep vacuuming the pool until you get it. Only thing that I would panic about is if it's sticking to something and causing a problem.
