My 4 year old Grandson just threw up in the pool. I have not encountered this before and other than skim out what is floating around and vacuuming I am at a loss.

FC I have been keeping high. This morning at 1036 EST the readings were as follows (it is now 1449 EST).

FC 8.4
CC .2
pH: 7.6
TA 60
CYA 50

It was not a l arge amount but not a small amount either, requiring skimming as mentioned.

In a word, HELP.

Thank you,

THE Man to the rescue! Hope all is well. Thanks for the good news. Should I hit it HARD with chlorine tonight, near the SLAM level after dropping pH?

Thanks Sir!

No need to add more chlorine. Just keep at normal levels.

Puke is not a big deal. Now the other end -- you need to add some chlorine for. Especially if 'loose'.
