I'm still fairly new to pool ownership, this is my first full season.
I've had a couple algae blooms this year and have had to SLAM twice now. I never can seem to completely get rid of the algae. Every single morning there is a thin film on the bottom and sides. According to the CYA/Chlorine chart my minimum chlorine level is 4ppm with a target of 6. I have been keeping it closer to 10 and it has never been below 8 but the algae still keeps growing.
I'm just about ready to give up and go buy Algaecide and PhosFree to try to get this under control. I hate to declare failure on the whole BBB philosphy but I just can't get rid of the algae. I have never really gotten to crystal clear water yet either. I can see the drains and pattern on the liner in the deep end but it also is just a slight bit cloudy.
My "pool guy" is telling my my filter is too small and even if I kill the algae the filter will not get rid of all the dead algae. I partially beieve that but last year towards the end of the season I did get crystal clear water so I know the filter can do the job.
I passed the OCLT last night 8.5 last night, 8.0 this morning after 1.5 hrs of sunlight were already hitting the pool.
What am I doing wrong?
