  • OK, I give up. I assume someone dumped this in pool to make bubbles? Dilution or complete empty and refill. This happens at least once a month in our local pond with the large spray in center. After a day or so, the bubbles go away. The ducks hate it however. Have you spoke to your local pool supplier? They perhaps knowing what exactly happened can assist you on how to clean this up, ( had to say it sorry)

  • A possible answer I came across was to make sure the pool pumps are running properly and to add about a quart of mineral spirits for a normal sized pool. Please check with a pool person or two before you try this....LUCK!

    I guess you can now do laundry for the WHOLE neighborhood in one big batch. You could tout it as a "bring you own clothes line" party...clothing optional of course...LOL You could also look into some commercial "defoaming" agents when I worked in Biotech we used these all the time in some of our process equipment. We used oil mixes with Polyethylene silicone etc. You can get "defoamer" at places that rent carpet cleaning equipment.
