First post, but have been lurking a bit and ordered the TF-100 because of the greenish 'dust' that keeps re-appearing on the pool floor after cleaning. I've added a pretty crappy cell pic but at least you can see the tracks my Kreepy Krauly has been making through the muck. The water is actually pretty clear although the pic doesn't really show it.
I suspect this is algae and would like confirmation as such. If I vacuum it all up, it will be back in a few days. I use liquid chlorine from the pool store along with the trichlor pucks. Looking to switch to the BBB method pretty soon to get away from the pucks.
Last evening's test results:
FC 11.5 - higher than I thought it would have been but I had added about 1.25 gal of chlorine on Wed morning.
Temp was 86-87 at time sample was pulled; I kicked the pump on for about 45 mins before I pulled the sample
*Had a hard time getting a CH reading; got one by using the alternate test approach listed under the extended test instructions post. The water here is pretty hard.
So I'm assuming I need to follow the Defeating Algae instructions to whip this thing in shape.
If so, any other suggestions after getting the algae under control?
Thanks in advance...
