Skimmer

Skimmer is going wacko after I completed a treatment of chemiclean. I left it off during the 3 days of treatment. After treatment I did water change and turned on skimmer. It's been overflowing for two days now. How long will it be til it goes back to normal?

Just keep changing out the water till the foaming stops it took me 50 or 60% to get it back under control

Chemiclean goes over this in their instructions that the skimmer will go nuts and that you need to do water changes.
