For the past 2 years I have a red algae problem that I can't get rid of... l live in NJ and my pool is currently closed, but I want to try and deal with this as soon as I open it in about a month. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I have tried shocking the pool, as well as using different types of algecide, etc. but nothing has worked. I have been told that red algae is really a bacteria and "yellow out" is the way to go. However, this will turn the pool into a bromine pool, which is something that I really do not want to do. I have a salt generator, keep the CYA at 70 and FC at 2-3.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
