New pool owner here. We live in Mobile, Al. We have a 24,000 gal vinyl pool with a sand filter. Being a new pool guy I didnít know all the essentials to maintain a pool and the Chlorine level dropped and we had algae. Itís been a couple weeks and Leslie pool store said we have mustard algae, simply by a description of brushing it to a plume in the morning and color. It seems to be throughout the pool and on diagonals into the deep end. Mistakenly I shocked with powder chlorine and added tabs to inline chlorinator ( understand now thatís a no no ) and the CYA level is now up. Iíll post some pics and see it that helps. I want to say itís pollen since the FC level has been over 10ppm for weeks and it hasnít improved, but then again maybe I didnít shock it to a high enough FC level.
Should I pump it down, maybe during a vacuum to waste to clean the bottom and lower the CYA.
Any help is greatly appreciated
What do ya think?
