I need help. I began a green algae SLAM 23 days ago. Back then there were 6 or so hand sized patches of algae on walls, water clear. Since Day 2 SLAM no visible algae, water clear. I am unable to reach SLAM completion due to persistence of CC between 1.0 - 2.5, usually 1.5. Running out of ideas I raised FC to mustard algae SLAM 6:30 pm yesterday. Today's numbers:
About 10 days ago I added trichlor pucks to feeder to raise CYA from high 20's to mid 30's (using Pool Math). CYA has rapidly drifted back down into high 20's by yesterday's reading. There have been several inches of rain during the SLAM. Pool overflows. Cleaned DE screens 2 days ago. Screens were caked but no green visible. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I've never quite understood how to distinguish green algae from mustard algae.
