tiki fuel in the pool.... what would you do??

Last night there was such a wind storm that one of the tiki lamps blew into the pool. The fuel is floating on top. I have a call into the pool guy but Im sure he is swamped today. What would you do??

btw - im in so. cal. so draining the pool is a very very last resort option since the water fines would be huge.

  • scoop out as much as possible. Do you have an adsorbent of some kind that wont mix in the water? I know talc will suck up oils and not dissolve well in water. I'd shake baby powder over it and scoop it out.

    and i would take down all the tiki torches.
