I replaced sand in filter 2 yrs ago. How does sand aid cleaner work & how often should it be used? Thank you
Jim, Sand Filter Aid works by breaking down suntan lotions, body oils and other organic materials that can clog up your sand filter system. If you have a heavy bather load, I would recommend using the product once a month.
I accidentally spilled about 1/2 cup of used motor oil in my pool. I shut off pump. I still think some got into the sand filer and I have some floating on water surface. What advice do you have for clean up?
CJ, Pool First Aid Enzyme 2L will work great on cleaning up your pool with having to do extra work.
