Ouch! :shock:

I don't have any experience with Peanut Oil. I understand some of the biological chemicals are good for grease & oil. Something LIKE THIS maybe? And get two or three "scum balls"...for sure. :lol:

you can use clarifiers and enzymes to help break down these oils. in addition, I would also suggest you shock your pool utilizing a liquid chlorine. in this way, it will oxidize any organics in the pool.

If you have a lot of oil present in your pool, you can use PIG oil only absorbent mats. It will absorb the oil present in the water and it won't rip or tear even when saturated.
