Hi my dad typically manages the pool but he is away and left me in charge. That isn't working out.
I have a medium algae bloom, and tested the pool from a pool store but I don't know what the best way to balance the chemicals is or should i deal with the algae first.
I make sure the keep backwashing my filter and the pool rover vacuum filter is clean
Free Chlorine .03 ppm
Total Chlorine .03 ppm
Combined Chlorine 0 ppm
pH 8 ( pool store said to lower it so I already put in 2lbs of decreaser)
Alkalinity 39 ppm
Cyanuric Acid 6 ppm
Copper 0 ppm
Iron .1 ppm
I have a 15x30 above ground pool, with a sand filter
Please help in how i should continue to clean the pool, do I balance it first before i super shock it for the algae or algae clear first then balance.
any advice is greatly appreciated!
