    poop in pool

    I'm taking care of a friends pool when he's out of town. I have about 2 weeks until he gets back and I'm going to skip the details but poop is now in the pool. And I waited to long and its not solid anymore. The pool is filthy now and I know nothing about pools. What do I do?

    We need lots of details, pool size, type, how it is sanitized, do you have a good quality test kit, etc , but probably the best thing to do is tell your friend and find out how they want to handle it

    Haha. Sorry. Does your friend have a test kit on site?

    We're not really into sorry term fixes here. It's more about education and long term pool care.

    Short answer is bleach and running filter/pump continuously.

    Doing it properly requires a crash course in the Pool School link at the top of the forum.

    +1 this is the most appropriate response.

    If you can sort out the language, here's what the CDC response is: http://www.cdc.gov/healthywater/pdf/...mendations.pdf
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
