    Yellow Out

    This may help persistent algae, go to walmart or Loews and look for Yellow Gone (2 lbs) and follow instructions (very easy to do results should be impressive) (then need to add 2 lbs cyanuric acid afterwards). helped my Louisiana pool.

    We would never reccomend adding something blindly without understanding the chemical compound and the effects of said chemical compound on pool water.

    We do not advocate adding things to your pool without understanding what chemical is and how it will react with pool water.

    Re: I need help.. major algae issue

    I wouldn't recommend the yellow based on previous discussions and experience here for normal pool use.

    Yellow Gone is not normally a product advised for use here at TFP as noted HERE.

    Re: Yellow Out

    I must know, did you research what is in Yellow Gone, see what it does to the pool chemistry and then make the decision to introduce it in your pool and base your recommendations upon that knowledge?

    Or did you just buy something at Walmart, dump it in your pool without knowing what it is or how it works, see it helped and decide you must tell everyone to use it without knowing how it will affect their pool chemistry?

    Re: Yellow Out

    Since adding that product.... how's your FC holding up?? It usually causes a problem there.
