Pool water contamination

Postby brewboy » Tue 06 Sep, 2005 12:18

Some really mean high school kids decided to play a prank on me (and my family, yes I have teenagers) and dumped a quart of vegetable oil as well as a few bars of soap into my above ground pool.

So far I have added some "Pool Perfect" natural enzyme, (to clean up/solidify the oil) and tried shocking the pool several days in a row. (six one pound bags of shock and counting)

The problem right now is that I have a terrible algea problem on top of the huge chunks of solidified oil that are floating/sinking around the pool. Not to mention that my filter becomes clogged after a few hours of operation and the pressure gage is reading 25 lbs.

Backwashing/shocking/etc seem to have no effect. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
