Of course I started this whole pool thing thinking I could just add water, turn on the SWG and enjoy the pool. Well, that was 6 weeks ago. I didn't know it, but I was fighting mustard algae from the get go (thought it was just pollen). We kicked up the SWG, cuz we weren't reading any FC in the pool. 4 weeks in, it turned to a nice swamp green. I shocked it with 8oz. of Dichlor. That cleared it right up, but then my SWG died and only shows a service light. I finally started reading TFP about two weeks ago and have been learning a lot! I'd like to use the BBB method until and after I get my waranteed SWG from Intex. The mustard algae came back 3 days ago and I thought it was just green algae so I shocked it with 5.7oz of 48% cal-hypo to bring the FC up to 10. The next night the FC was 0 and I realized that it was mustard algae so I shocked it with 20oz. of cal-hypo (all that I had on hand) and 2oz. of trichloro-s-triazinetrione to bring the FC up to 44 (mustard algae shock level).
Today it looks much better. I finally got my TF-100 kit (probably overkill for my little pool) today and would like some advice as to where to go from here.
Any help is much appreciated!

CYA 0 or low (I don't know why, especially after adding pool shock)
