Just received my TF-100 Test Kit and took the appropriate readings. I have been battling green algae on and off for most of the summer. Just when it seems that we have it corrected, all appears well for 3 or 4 days and then it starts to get green again. I've completely had it with the pool stores. It seems like they want to sell me more stuff very time that I am there....powdered shock by the case, another treatment for cloudiness, a treatment for hardness and the list goes on. I began reading through the info on this site and it seems very practical.
I will take the readings for the OCLT and have a better idea in the morning. Any idea why the CH would be so high? I am also trying to figure out the pool math page. I have the Chlorine/CYA chart. Based on the readings, it looks like I need to SLAM.
