I too am fighting BA for the first time in 4 years. I am running a SWG and am in the middle of Siper Chlorination. I went ahead and brushed the spots with a wire algae brush and then added RAM Poly-algacide. I then brushed the entire pull down, and am about to go vaccume the pool. I also purchased "No More Problems" but have not added that, and not sure when would be a good time. I want to have the pool swimmable for Monday as the family will be spending all day outside. PH was high 8.2 and I added acid this morning. Already down to 7.8 last reading. TC was @ 4 and FC 0.
I do not want to use an algacide that has copper as I am affraid of staining. Should I use something different like RAM Blackout? I have PebbleSheen and even after brushing the spots, I have a feeling I am not geeting deep enough even with the wire brush. Very frustrating type of algae to have...I fought green algae after the hurricane came through a few years ago, but i was able to lick that quickly. I just want this stuff gone!
Any suggestions are appreciated.
