    SLAM your pool. You must, brush, vacuum and keep the chlorine at SLAM value until your pool is crystal clear and you can pass the OCLT
    Duraleigh, this is pretty much what mine looks like too (from the copper/algaecide thread). Except mine gathers along some of the bottom seam of the liner between the floor and the wall. I never have it in splotches i the middle like the OP does.

    I did spin my eyeballs to change the flow of water from clockwise to counterclockwise to see if that would help.
