I have a 16'x42" intex easy set pool, I have added clarifier floc and the dead algea sits on the bottom of the pool. We have made a vacumn system for this pool as the one that comes with the pool doesnt go thru the outlet to the pump it only sucks up into a sack which didnt pick up the algea.
The pump that comes with the pool is a filter pump A cartridgetype has no settings on the pump at all is very basic plain.Intex model 637R filter pump.I am having a hard time to vacumn out the dead algea and dont know if the pump is just filtering this back into the pool instead of catching it in the filter. I rinse off the filter every time I vacumn and after running my pump for hours, and the algea is still sitting on the bottom of pool.
Is there any other way to get this dead algea out with the type of pump I have other then vacumning it? How long does it generally take to vacumn dead waste out? I have vacumned it 3 times so far with the new vacumn system we have and it is still there.
I also empty out the water in my pump cylinder to help get rid of the debris that stays floating inside the pump.
Prior to all this , yes I have shocked the system, used algeacide , have stabilizer in there and all tests were good.
