    Looks like I won my first algae battle

    Great site you have here. I started this fight on Saturday and the final photo is Thursday evening. I did just get in a 2650gph sand filter so this helped out a bunch.
    My levels are good now and I think we are done. Thanks to this site and all the folks who contribute.[attachment=1:5xi7k62z]2012-03-17 14.15.55.jpg[/attachment:5xi7k62z]

    Nice job

    It is hard to tell in that last picture, but the pool is crystal clear? The way the picture is displaying for me, the water looks a bit cloudy?

    Yep, cloudy to me, too. Keep your pump running 24/7 and keep your FC high for the next few days and I think you'll see even more improvement.

    Yea it is a bit cloudy but i have no CC so it is just filtering it out. It was a bit overcast at dusk also.
