Welcome to TFP! :wave: In most cases, foam just needs to ride its own course. You can scoop large amounts I suppose, but the chlorine will have to do the rest over time. Adding a product like that is not something we generally recommend at opening. You're welcome to post a full set of water results for us to evaluate.
