I open my pool-28000 gallon, SWG, painted plaster.
I had some mustard algae when I opened it, the water was pretty clear. So I take a sample to the local friendly pool store to get the water balanced.
The lady tried to sell me yellow out (bromine) for the mustard algae. I remembered reading here to just increase the chlorine.
I've used the yellow out before, but wanted to try just increased chlorine levels.
I told her I just needed some shock, and i would skip the yellow out.
She told me that chlorine feeds mustard algae.
Is there any truth to this?
Sometimes I think people try to take advantage of seniors.
