I opened my pool this year with significantly more algae than years past due to some issues I had with my cover at the end of last season (long story). I have been trying to follow the processes on this site to get to a "Sparkling Oasis" but have not been able to make it the whole way. A couple of times, I have gotten close, but a green tint has been persistently returning. I am three weeks into this process, and starting to feel like it is not going to end!
The reason I am stumped is that I think my pool chemistry is relatively in balance, but there is no long term improvement. Here are today's numbers:
FC 9.5 (I had been trying to keep it around 10)
CC <0.5 (doesn't this mean that the algae is dead?)
I've attached pictures. Any help or hope would be greatly appreciated!!
