I have been thinking that I have a pollen problem because my overnight FC test had a zero drop, I have no CC, my white wedding cake steps keep turning yellow, the pool water is clear unless the gunk gets stirred up, I saw nothing green when I sucked up a spot into a turkey baster, and because we have had high pollen alerts for the past few weeks. In fact, we have high pollen alerts from different sources pretty much all year long and this has been happening in varying degrees since we got the pool a few months ago. Anyway, it's driving me crazy. I will vacuum the pool and within 12 hours it has gunk all over the bottom again. I took some pictures for some help from you great folks. It looks yellow on the white steps but green against the blue bottom of the pool. It brushes away in a cloud.
What do you think I have? Pollen or algae? Thanks in advance for any and all comments and observations!
In this picture I brushed the middle step. It reminds me of a teeth whitening commercial.
This is what your teeth look like now. This is what your teeth will look like after 5 applications of our whitener.
In this one you can see the little yellow stuff.
