I am looking at opening my pool for the second time, more scared than the first. I have yet to bring it out, clean and prepare it. Last year I battled Algae at least three times, I would like avoid that this time. I have a Walmart test kit, and have seen so many recommended chemical levels I am thoroughly confused. I used granular chlorine last year, planning to go with LIQUID this year (local price is 6.99/Gal).
I plan to fill it, shock it, test it, and balance... But what should I watch the closest for the algae problem? I would like to use the BBB method but the wife is going to just kill me if we have a green pool at 107 degrees this year.
I am in a high risk category here, and would really appreciate a little feedback regarding algae control. Thanks!
