Thread: Carpet shampoo in pool water!!

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Angry Carpet shampoo in pool water!!

    My brother accidentally spilled Carpet shampoo in the pool (15x26x52 AG)while watching my house. We didn't notice until we saw some bubbles/foam. I dumped out the about 12' of water. The bubbling has decreased, but I'm worried about effects on the water and the kids. I can't imagine it could still be harmful. I was considering adding some de-foam I have from my spa and splash about...

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    DP

    12' of water ... how deep is your pool

    Chlorine will eventually break down the soap.

    I can not imagine how that is possible ... you sure he was not having a bubble party in your pool while you were gone

    sorry 12" - It wasn't a whole gallon since I know the bottle wasn't full..... he was messing with the carpet cleaner on the deck and knocked it over (his story) or he grabbed the wrong white jug (more likely I suspect).

    Did you check a MSDS for the cleaner to see if there is anything in the mix to worry about ?? What exactly was it he dumped in ??
