Ok so I have a few question.
I have been fighting mustard algae almost all summer! Luckily I found this site and I plan to SLAM. I have read the mustard algae forum and am excited to start.
First question, I have read pool store testing is no good. My pool store doesn't use test strips they use some kind of machine. Is this still not accurate? I hate to buy a test kit this late in the year since we will be closing the pool in a few weeks.
Also, should I be vacuuming to waste while while SLAMing ? Or will our sand filter take care of that?
Last thing, our iron level is 0.3 , is this really a big deal? Would it be making my algae worse?
