Question for all -
We are getting some staining and have had success with the AA treatment at removing these stains. They tended to come back over the year though. We just closed the pool. I would like to treat when I open the pool in the spring b/c the temps will still be low enough to slow algea growth. We have a company open the pool for us - I think I may be able to do it this year - I'm pretty sure I can remove the cover and reattach the SWG. They usually dump a lot of chlorine in - not what I want if I'm going to do the AA treatment. So my question is what order do I do things?
Do I open, clean up all the debris, keep at shock levels until it passes the overnight test and CC< 0.5 and then put the algaecide, drop the FC to 0 and do the AA treatment or...
AA treatment first and slowly increase FC? I think the first is the way to go to kill off anything that grew over winter?
Sorry to sound so stupid!
