    Soap in poo - l HELP

    I cleaned my cartridge filter with tide and apparently didn't rinse it well enough and now I have soap bubbles floating on the top, any suggestions on how to get rid of them?

    Why did you clean your cart with Tide? Try using auto dishwasher liquid next time and submerse your cart in a bucket. Let sit at least a couple of hours then empty and rinse thoroughly.
    Not sure how to get bubbles out of pool sorry, maybe someone else has more experience with this.

    You can use scum balls to get the soap scum & bubbles out and the chlorine will oxidize the rest.
