    Hello Shaun and welcome. Yes, I suspect some scrubs are in order if the algae is at or above the waterline. Grab a brush and some bleach and hit it good. If you see cloudiness or green below the waterline, you'll want to increase FC levels and do a "SLAM" as noted in my signature below. Ordering the proper test kit (TF-100 or Taylor K-2006) would be a very good thing to do if you can. Have a nice day.

    Welcom to TFP

    We have seen people from spain and they have always have a problem ordering a good test kit, ebay has a K-2006 that can be ordered worldwide but they are very expensive... it does the best at telling you what your water is doing

    Welcome! Increase FC and brush your pool weekly!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
