I just received my test kit and although I posted the other day about having algae, I no longer have algae but not sure what to do next. I quickly tested the Free Chlorine and got a value of 1.5. My total chlorine was 3.0. My water is clear and looks great, but as I said we had algae for 2 weeks. We used pool store shock for a few days, then started using just plain chlorine as suggested by your forum. It seems to have cleared up the algae problem. Do I need to adjust anything else? My CYA is registering at 40, although I'm nervous about that being correct since my last trip to the pool store I was told it was 67.
Do I need to shock anymore, or just maintain now?
Thank you for your help,
