I'm currently Slamming my pool (16,500 gal, pebble tech).
Algae unfortunately got out of control while I was on vacation. Had high CYA as well, so needed to drain partially and re-fill.
I'm just about 24 hours into the slam process. There is some improvement in the color, but the pool is still quite green. Is that normal after a day of shocking? I was under the impression that the "green hue" would dissipate more rapidly, and while I'd expect cloudiness, the Algae would be dead and gray by now.
I'm fine with it taking longer (have a few days off to deal with this), but just want to make sure it's normal that it could take a few days, and I'm not missing something.
Thanks in advance for the help.
Current test results are:
pH (before shock) 7.6
