The last few days, the weather has been cloudy, so I left the solar pool cover on without running Kreepy Krawly. Pulled the cover off this morning and saw the pool floor was green, but the water was crystal clear. However, as Kreepy was cleaning the floor the pool started to haze over(backwashed lots of green algae). So is it normal for algae to build up on the floor when the pool hasnt been vacuumed every day. Also, is this consistent with NOT running the pump overnight as the Intelliflo only runs long enough for 1 turnover a day.
I measured the FC to be 5 with Taylor DPD test before I put the Kreepy into the pool so I think chlorine hasn't dropped to near zero over the past few days.
I guess the pool is considered to be bloomed now with yellow algae requiring shock to clear? Is there a POOL School topic on Daily Maintenance that would cover this?
