    Help with Conditioner

    We recently got our pool refinished and we are trying to get everything balanced. Leslie's told us to put conditioner in our pool so our chlorine would stay active longer. We accidentally threw it all directly in the pool rather than dissolving it or putting it in a sock in our skimmer. Now, we can see all the granules sitting on the bottom of our pool. Will this cause damage to our new surface (I think it's called sunstone or something like that)? Should we try to vacuum it up with the aquabot? Or vacuum it with the normal vacuum that will go to our filter? Or, just leave it and wait for it to dissolve? Thanks for any help!

    vacuum it into the filter and leave the filter run overnight. It is acidic and can cause freckles in the new surface.

    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!
