When we closed the pool last fall and they pulled out the cartridge filters I saw pink goop on them. the pool guy said it was pink algae just starting. So I've been looking up info on pink algae and find that it is NOT an algae and chlorine does not fix it. I've used the BBB method and all last year my numbers were always excellent. I never noticed any pink in the pool etc. So when we open in a couple of months I'd like to know what to do to make sure I don't have a problem. This is a link I found informative:
I always use a solar cover unless the temp outside stays in the 90's for a few days as I like the pool water 85 degrees.
I don't know if I should use the items mentioned from the link above or if anyone else has a better way.
