How to Get Soap Bubbles Out of a Swimming Pool

Soap bubbles develop in your pool if you haven't cleaned the pool in a while, when the pH is not balanced properly or if you accidentally drop detergent in your pool. You can remove these bubbles manually with a skimmer and then chemically with white vinegar. Prevent bubbles from developing by balancing the pH level in your pool and cleaning it more thoroughly.

Avoid soap bubbles in your pool by keeping the pH balanced.

Step 1

Scoop the soap bubbles out of the pool with a pool skimmer. Throw the bubbles into your trashcan. This process will remove most of the bubbles.

Step 2

Mix 2 cups water with 2 cups white vinegar. Pour the solution into a spray bottle.

Step 3

Mist the rest of the bubbles with the solution. This will immediately remove the rest of the bubbles. Use as little vinegar as possible as too much vinegar may cause a pH imbalance.
