Pool is still a bit cloudy -- in the deep end -- and there is brownish/yellow stuff around the water line --- also still some patches of brown/yellow on the floor that will not scrub off. I'm not sure if this is mustard algae or not. All the white areas (steps, outlets) are brownish. Pool calculator says to get my FC up to 14 for mustard algae -- which it says is about 4 bottles of bleach. I'm pretty sure my family is going to want to swim this weekend and so am concerned about both the potential algae -- and the chlorine level.
Don't have a test for borates/borax -- do strips work for that? From everything I have read here I should stop using the liquid algaecides -- bleach instead?

Have been trying to read a lot here --- and am learning that I have a lot to learn! and unfortunately don't have enough time to devote to it all. Thanks for any suggestions.
