We are in the process of attempting the AA treatment to rid pool stains - 2007 forum. This is our second attempt - last month we did not have enuf Jack's Purple Stuff and the stain came back so started the process again today with plenty of Jacks on hand. Unfortunately, we ran out of AA (used 16 oz) before all the stains were removed.
My questions are:
Should I wait to add the Jack's until I get more AA - (I have to order online as can't get enuf locally) - it will be 3 to 4 days before it arrives.
Still have the filter on recirculate - it's been about 3 hours now - should I leave as is or back to normal settings (filter on 6 hrs per day 7 a.m. - 2 p.m.)
Tests as of this a.m. - Ph - 7.2; Clorine 1, TA 90. As an aside - we are seeing some slight red algae and green algae on the ladder (new events past few days).
Assume from what I've read, I need to also purchase Polyquat 60 (can't get that locally either) unless there are like products I can grab at Home Depot or Walmart.
As a follow up - after the first AA treatment - pool looked great but chlorine levels were always low - even after adding more and more. It's been in the 90's and pool is in full sun all day and solar cover at night.
Poor planning on my part - sorry and thanks for any help/suggestions. LOL as I typed the Title - If I don't get this right, I may need to become a member of the other "AA" !!!!
