I think I screwed up. I had a new vinyl liner installed last week. My pool is 18' x 38' and it takes 3 truckloads of water to fill it; however, since water is $225 per truckload, I bought 3 truckloads and decided to fill the rest of it with my water hose (to save $). It took 2 days to fill it because I didn't want to leave the water running while I was at work. So, I couldn't put chlorine in it until it was deep enough to run the filter. But the pool store said no problem: city water has chlorine. Anyway, now I have mustard algae!
Now for the screw up: I went to the pool store. They sold me some algaecide. I dumped in about 2 ounces (maybe 3), and then looked at the ingredients.
Eek! COPPER. I had remembered somewhere that copper stains liners. Now I'm freaking out. Do you think my new liner will stain? I'm not using that stuff anymore. I should have looked at the ingredients first. I'm having a pool party tomorrow at noon. I'm also freaked out that the water will turn green because of the copper.
Please answer fast. I've already had 3 rum and cokes.
Thanks in advance.
