Algae (green) keeps overcoming my pool. New to this site and I'm draining my pool for the 3rd time. Found it's cheaper to do that then clean it out (70.00) than what I would estimate the couple of 100.00 dollars in chemicals.
I've got a security light in the back corner of my yard, and I'm wondering if the bugs it draws to the pool is effecting my always rising Ph levels. I can adjust my PH one day and it's fine, and the next, it's sky high again.
As for shock, I went through three bags last week (one each day) before losing the pool, and the next day there was not Chlorine present.
What the heck is going on!
