Hey guys! This is my first post 8)
I have run a pool service and repair business for the last 8 years and have never come across a problem like this. My partner who has been in the business for 30+ years has but he is old school and with all of the advancements lately I thought there had to be an faster way to deal with this than what he advised.
Here is the story; A bunch of one of my customer's kid's freinds thought it would be wise to use cooking oil to lube the slide sooooo all of the kids coated themselves in crisco and proceeded to enjoy the pool I get the call a couple days later and go out to check it out. Basically I have a film of oil over the top of the pool a nice ring around the tile and a bunch of coagulant on the pool sweep hose. I stuck a finger in and it is sticky like glue. YUCK! Any of you professionals seen this before? Any Ideas on how to handle it?
I am trying to skim it off the top by running the filter (DE) 24/7 and back washing daily. Just started today but I just know there has to be something out there to hasten the process. Any Ideas???
