I have cloudy water and failed the Overnight test, so I am going to SLAM. I believe the algae is IN the ladder because I am pretty strict about watching the Chlorine levels. I always brush the stairs, but I dont think the water that is in the ladder gets circulation. Here is my question: Can I just pour bleach into the ladder hole, that has water in it? If so how much bleach? I realize that I should take the entire ladder out and do it, but my husband is away on business and wont be back for a week, and I cant do it on my own. For reference I have the Confer A-Frame Above Ground Swimming Pool Ladder. Thanks for any help you can give.
