    how do you get yellow or green algae out

    My pool was crystal clear and then I had to have emergency surgery and was unable to care for the pool for almost 2 weeks. I have tried shock, chlorine, algaecide,and yellow out. I have swept the pool 5-6 times a day cleaned the filter multiple times a day and nothing is working. I need help.

    Welcome to TFP!

    This is the process we use to kill algae, SLAM.

    You will need a good test kit if you don't have one. I use the TF-100 from TFTestkits.net. it is the best value as shown here,Pool School - Test Kits Compared
