I gargled it but mostly they said don't add too much clarifier because it can act as a dispersant if there is too much and the particle size must be nano sized, going right through the dam filter. I called my pool place they said turn off the pump for a day but google says the particles in over clarified pools don't just settle out, more like a colloid, where brownian movement just bounces around the tiny particles forever.
Originally posted by @sonhouse My son put in way too much clarifier, it says one ounce per 5k gallons, my pool is only 10k so 2 ounces, but he put in a lot more than that.
When the pool was turgid the filter would go from 9PSI to 12 or so, indicating it needed backwashing.
Now,the pressure has stayed at 9 for 3 days now, clearly the particles are too small to be trapped by the san ...[text shortened]... ipitate out.
Is that the only thing I can do? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
The general advice seems to be that it will eventually clear itself, but will take a while. (The particles will clump together). -Run the filter 24/7 until it clears - Watch the pressure so you'll know when to clean the filter.

Do you know the dif between 'clarifier' and flocculant? I thought they were the same but not sure.
Originally posted by @sonhouse Maybe if we used 'clarifier' maybe flocculant does it a different way chemically? I might try that.
I'd seriously be inclined to wait it out sir, let it clear itself.
I recently laid a mosaic tile floor in the bathroom and the light grey grout has dried in 2 slightly different shades. (Irritates the hell out of me). My instinct is to do something proactive to fix the problem (sandpaper maybe) but have likewise been advised to play the waiting game and to give the floor time to fully dry out, in the hope the color will become uniform.
