When I started the TFPC method it was because I was being pool stored and had thrown so many dollars into my pool because I had what I thought was plain old algae. I did my research and slammed my pool only for the algae to return 9 days after finishing the slam so I slammed it again. I don't know why on earth it didn't dawn on me at that time that it must be mustard algae but it didn't. DUH! Now here I sit 9 days after finishing my last slam with the revelation that I have the dreaded mustard algae. Grrr! I am totally onboard with the TFPC method and know that I am just still dealing with a previous problem. Here's my questions: 1. I had planned on people coming to swim on both Saturday and Tuesday so could I just brush and vacuum everyday until Tuesday afternoon and then begin my slam? I am embarrassed as all get out of the algae problem because I keep a super clean pool and always get so many compliments on it so I really don't want to be in the middle of a slam when they come. 2. When I do begin the slam process I know it is safe to swim in but what about the 24 hours after the slam when I bring the FC up to mustard shock level? I am assuming for sure that I can get in since it says to be brushing everything and vacuuming so much but what about my 8 year old kiddo?
Thank you all so much!
