Awesome site, and thanks to those who come here to provide help. Much appreciated.
Last year I was in a rush to close the pool. Freezing temps were coming and I was preparing for some travel. I was in the middle of a algae problem so I shocked covered it....figured I would deal with it this spring.
I opened to a green swamp two weeks ago. I immediately went to work on it and finally got it cleared up...problem is that I can get the algae stains to come off. I have been at shock levels for two weeks and it is barely touching the stains. I wont say slam levels because my test kit doesn't read that high, i'm much higher than 12 for sure. TF-100 kit will be here Wednesday.
At this rate, it might be Fall before I get this cleaned up. Any thoughts on a quicker way to remove the stains other than drain and acid wash?
As I said before, the TF-100 kit will be here Wednesday so I don't have all the readings. I know my FC is somewhere above 12.
