My wife noticed algae underneath the plastic housing on our baba shelf bubbler today. Our numbers have been good and we've been using the TFP method since about a couple of weeks after our pool was finished this summer. Our numbers have been good and never below the minimum target values. Today, we have a CYA of just below 50, Cl of 5.5 (adding a little bleach now), and pH of 7.7 (will decrease it today).
Is the bubbler housing supposed to get water in it? I would think that it should be water tight, but if not the water probably does not circulate enough to keep it from blooming.
Can I remove the housing without draining he pool below this level? If so, how?
Will SLAMming get rid of the algae without being able to get to it and scrub it away/treat it with a little bleach?
We sent a message to our PB a few minutes ago, but I always get quicker and better advice from here. Thanks.
