OK so i am at the end of rope with this pool this year. First of all my readings.
5.5 - FC
0 - CC
70 - TA
PH - 7.6
CH - 270
CYA - 70
Pool is constant sunlight from sunrise to sunset. Water temerature yesterday peaked at 86 degrees.
Now the problem is the stains that you will see in the following pictures all the way around my pool that i believe to be algae. I brush the pool every single day but the algae continues to grow. Water is sparkling clear. I have a new Jandy Aquapure 1400 SWG set at 85%, pump runs 14 hours per day, and i keep two 3" trichlor tabs in skimmer basket at all times, using polyquat 60. Seams to use a ton of chlorine. I have tried and checked everything. Shocking constantly, almost daily. Are the 2 different types of chlorine counteracting each other ?
