I am new to this forum but need advice. I have read a great deal on this website, which has been very helpful. Thank you!
Problem 1-I have algae, water has greenish tint.
Problem 2-I purchased a good test kit and my CYA is OTC (off the chart-over 100) so it appears I need to drain the pool to get the CYA down in order to have the shock process work.
Problem 3-I live in the Phoenix AZ area and it is already into the 100 degree temps during the day. I have also researched and it appears a pool should not be drained during this type of heat. The nighttime temps are in the high 60's and low 70's.
Would you recommend I drain the pool anyway since the 100 degree heat cools down at night? I don't want to live with an algae problem all summer and wait until the heat subsides to drain the pool this fall.
Thanks for your help!
