You forgot to tell me to take the wedding cake steps out! And, in today's world, I refuse to take responsibility for my own actions, even if it is mentioned in some of the threads and school
Nah, seriously, here's lessons learned for others. After 1.5 months and I don't know how many gallons of chlorine, the pool was blue this AM and I could see the bottom . I attribute this to doing something I had not read, and that was turn off the pump last night and let the dead algae sink to the bottom. I vac'ed to waste and it was fantastic.....until I went to get out and the wedding cake steps moved and released a could of algae I pulled them out and that was a giant algae petri dish!
I cleaned them and am letting the algae sink to the bottom and then I'll vac to waste again and then hit er hard with chlorine again tonight. I have no CYA and can't get any until tomorrow. I haven't bothered with tests because I'm almost out of reagents and know chlorine is zero.
This sound like a plan?
