    I accidently put splash proof Clorox in my pool.

    It was mixed in with the other bottles I put about half a gallon or so before I saw it foaming. What will this do to my pool?

    You and many others before you

    It will just foam for while. No real harm.

    Just give it time, it will filter out. You're not the first, no worries just annoying, huh?

    No permanent damage. Time and chlorine will oxidize the suds away. Maybe go a little higher tha normal on the Fc to hasten things.

    They should make the bottles look different

    I really can't tell I put it in. It was just foaming when I first put it in
