So I cleared up a rather nasty algae attack when by pump broke and it took 10 days to get a new one. After that I had a cloudy pool for several days and then I was very close to absolutely clear then I observed my almost clear pool begin to turn yellow and now very yellow green very quickly. I'm first wondering if this is the dreaded mustard algae. According to the calculator I needed some 300 ounces of 10% bleach to shock. I poured 4 gallons into my pool and saw absolutely no difference the next day.
I'm having trouble understanding shock. I was using powdered shock in 1 pound bags now I am using 10% chlorine in 1 gallon jugs. My pool is 8600 gallons and I need to know exactly what to add. If normal free chlorine should be 3 ppm and shock recommendation show close to 30 does that mean I need to pour in 10 gallons at a time?
Thanks I can use all the help I can get, I got three little girls really want to swim
