    Lots of rain and a mess

    Here in the houston area we have had maybe 15" of rain over the last couple of weeks. I have been trying to keep up but it is not getting any better. 20kgal pool.
    The pool has been staying abit green. I brush the algea daily. It clears abit then back to light green
    Can see the algea moving while brushing.
    Been using the tf100 full test anout every 4 days. Most #s seems ok but the cl2 levels are high.
    Today i pulled the 4 cartridge filters, cleaned, and drained the filter tank. They didnt look that bad but a little algea in the tank
    Here are the #s
    Ph 7.8. Been keeping down closer to 7.2
    Fc 21. (Has increased. Over 2 weeks. 11. 13. 20. Now 21. No relief on the algea)
    No cc
    Altho cl2 has been high the algea is still there so have been adding bleach a jug every other day due to the constant rain and present algea. Still no relief on the algea.
    Good circulation on the pump and last couple days pump on 24hrs.

    20000 gal
    in-ground plaster, replaced early 2015
    Cartridge filtration,
    single speed pump
    well water

    Pool School - SLAM - Shock Level And Maintain

    SLAM level for 80 CYA is 31, so you have yet to start!

    You could kill two birds with one stone and replace half your water. Although you're on well water. I guess that might make 1/2 water replacement tough.
