    Amonia

    Am I correct that amonia wouldn't somehow be formed from regular OTC dishwashing liquid & pool water, pool water winterized properly or not?

    If I'm incorrect, then I'll pursue this thread, if correct I'll not waste anyone's time.

    Thanks

    Dishwashing detergent in pool water would not produce ammonia. However, if a pool is "let go" over the winter or at any other time is allowed to get to zero chlorine levels, then bacteria in the pool can convert Cyanuric Acid (CYA) into ammonia.
