I have a Vinyl inground pool (size 20x40, 33,000 gallon) and had not opened last year since we were out of town. Now that I opened it, I see the pool water is green.
I went to local Leslies pool store and got water checked. Here is the result:
Chlorine (DPD Test): 1.2
I have shocked the pool twice with 4lbs of "Power Powder Pro" each time by mixing it in water before pouring it into the vinyl pool. (Per pool store, it strong and hard on vinyl)
Based on Leslies pool's suggestion, I bought this weekend "Chor Brite" 40lb bucket for $134 to shock the pool futher to get rid of Algae. I haven't opened the new box yet. Is there a cheaper alternative for it?
Experts, please recommend me on how to get rid of Algae and what type of Chlorine should I use for my vinyl pool. I would appreciate your input.
