Just went to clean the cartridges in my new Dolphin Triton Plus (which I do NOT recommend) and noticed they were green. They are usually brown when they need cleaning from the dirt and debris but this time they were blatantly green. And as I rinsed them the water ran off green. My husband started brushing the sides of the pool and would get some green clouds here and there. However, our chlorine has been fine. It was 2 FC when we tested it tonight and I added enough to bring it to 5.
Can you get algae when your chlorine levels are normal? Our water looks fine - crystal clear. We are in the middle of bringing our CYA up from 10 to 40 and won't be able to test until Sunday (I understand it takes a week to register)...not sure if that can impact it.
