Hey all! I'm having pool trouble again. I ended up with pneumonia and then it rained... a lot. So now I have a crazy algae bloom. No problem, I'm all well again so off to Sam's I went to buy bleach. My FC readings using the FAS-DPD are ranging between 2-5. I can't seem to get the FC reading to shock level. In the last 5 hours I have put 7 bottles of bleach in the pool. Is it possible my FAS-DPD chemicals are bad? The R-0871 is clear and I just bought new 0870 from TFtestkits.com. When I run the chlorine test using 0600 it's at least 5 every time, even when my FAS-DPD is 2. Should I just buy new chems? Is it possible that my algae problems is that bad?
Other readings right now:
CYA 50 (Higher than what I'd like, but still doable with shock)
