    Tiki torch oil in pool!

    Kids were climbing on the waterfall and accodentlybknocked over a tiki torch and oil dropped in the pool. Oil was visible on the surface. I added pool first aid. That seemed to have broken up the oil on the surface almost immediately. How long should I keep everyone out of the pool? Nothing on the bottle ifbpool first aid says anything about not to swim. I should add that other than the oil, the pool is safe to swim in. Thanks!

    I would keep everyone out until you get all the oil out.

    When you get a chance, clean the cartridge.
