I am a TFP newbie with a question concerning green algae and how to kill it.
Here is my question/hypothesis.
What if I just drain my pool? if this organism needs water or moisture to survive, ( I really don't know ) just stop feeding it. If I drain the pool, it will dry up and cease to exist. The dry algae can be then be brushed, scraped, vacuumed or whatever method is prescribed, effectively removing it from both pool and the pool filtering system, you just refill and maintain.
Will this work?
What I do know. Not good for any pool this size to be empty for any length of time.
Stats: Built-in pool. Holds 22,000 gallons. Filter system and pool sweep in place. Water is from well. Algae problem is minimal. Water is always clear.
Please let me know what you think.
If I missed something that is common knowledge to all of you, please cut me a little slack I'm still a rookie.
