    Is this algea?

    I think it's just dirt. My water is balanced and clear. I am so scared it's more than just dirty.

    I can't see what you are discussing in the pics. Can you post test results, please?

    You can do an Overnight Chlorine Loss Test to see if there something organic growing in the water.

    Oh, yes, I see you have SWG, yes 55 is a little low, 70 is better.
