My water has been cloudy lately so I've been using bleach, running pump 24/7, cl level has been staying elevated above 5 testing 3x day, pH is 7.5, brushing and vacuuming. My pool is slowly clearing. 2 days ago I noticed something on the skimmer hose. I took off the hose and it was green algae. I soaked it in bleach then scrubbed with a brush. This morning I thought I would check the ladder because of all the crevices and "hidden places". Sure enough on the underside of the steps and several of the crevices where the poles go through the steps was algae. I cleaned it with bleach and put the other side of the ladder in the pool. Since I turned the ladder around, should the algae be killed since it will be in the sun and not in the water? Or should I just not put that side back in the water?
