Due to a recent illness, I had to be away from home and my pool for well over a month. I returned home earlier this week to a disaster. The guy I had looking after the pool apparently did nothing. I have very bad algae growth on the walls, water is perfectly clear due to pump reuuning daily on a timer. Now for my question.
I was planning to do a total drain and refill this Spring due to high calcium and cyuneric acid levels. I am still not close to 100% physically, so I am looking for a way to accomplish both the algae elimination and the drain/refill with the least amount of effort. Can I start the drain, and as the water receeds, spray the exposed algae with a dilution of bleach and water, and then get in the pool and scrub with a brush and rinse with clear water? Would a spray dilution of polyquat and water be a viable and/or better solution?
Any help and advice you can give me will be appreciated.
