Well, I let the pool turn green again So I am getting good at fixing it from the green algae state because of having to do it many times. For various reasons I need to pare it down the major concepts...
What would be the main key things I need to do to avoid it going green on me?
My list would be:
- Never let FC drop below 1... especially not for more than a half day... to be safe, I should aim to never let it go below 2?
- Never let pH get above 7.4... so to be safe, I think I should aim to always be between 7.2-7.3 when I test it... I believe this is my biggest problem, when it rains a bunch, and about once a week, I think I've gotta add muriatic acid? For me it would be around 20 oz I add.
- Keep CYA above 30.
- Never go for more than 36 hrs without running the filter. Is that too lenient?
Is there more? I'm looking for only the stuff absolutely necessary to keep it from getting in a state that's harder to fix. Where you can't just add a few things over one evening and it's fixed.
