I am fairly new to pool maintenance. I was paying someone to it but he is currently unavailable. I thought it would be a good time to learn myself. Anyway, I purchased 2 1lb bags of shock to treat my pool. The bag said either to spread it around the pool or that it can be poured into the skimmer with the pump running. I removed the basket and poured in the shock. The skimmer line is now clogged and I can detect no suction coming from it. I assume I added the powder in too fast and it blocked the line. I tried using a garden hose and putting it down the hole. That did not work. I dried using a drain bladder to force the clog out. That didn't work either. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank You.
