Aloha all. I was in the tail-end of slamming my pool when my sand filter sprang a leak and I had to turn it off. Until the parts arrive and I get out to fix it, I have it on Recirculate. The algae that was almost gone seems to be returning. I think. I have 5 3" tabs total between the 2 skimmers and waterfall return. Don't know if this is a good way to go. Tomorrow I will be putting socks on my skimmers and brushing and vacuuming to Waste. Is there anything else I should do (or not do) to reduce the spread of the algae until I can get my filter back online and filter out the algae in another slam? Or, is the filter offline not really an issue?
Thanks in advance. I've been on a steep learning curve since acquiring our cool pool.
