First of all, if this has been discussed before, please point me to the appropriate thread.
This season, I've seen more cases of people having white water mold in their pools than any other year. Last season we had maybe two people reporting the problem. This season there have been over ten people.
So what is white water mold? Is it truly a mold? Or is it a "pink algae" type deal where it's just a misnomer?
Any ideas what's causing this for so many people this season? Is it environmental? River/Lake-based? Are people spreading it from pool to pool?
It's frustrating for me to see this same issue affecting so many people.
Also what's the best treatment method (in your experience) for something like this? Would the addition of borates do anything at all for this?
