I have already drained this pool once this summer and added a SWG, because of problems with algae and keeping chlorine in the pool, and my battle with ph. oh and lack of a good pool vacume. I refilled the pool on 7/15 got the swg going and all looked good for a few days. I have ran the swg 7 hours a day and the filter 24 hours. The pool has a good case of green algae going for the last 3 days. Since that I have ran the swg with the pump non stop. I have added 24 oz of muriatic acid twice in the last few days, vacumed and scrubbed the pool several times. (with new much better vacume). I am sure I need to use the muratic acid again to get the ph right, but I am also sure I need to use some bleach to shock & kill the algae. Can I use the muratic acid (12oz according to the pool calculator), and Bleach (29oz), at the same time? and should I disconect the swg while I am bleaching the pool? Used the HTH test strips. results questionable, but I know the my water has high ph from my fish tanks.
test results this morning=
FC 0.2, PH 8.0, TA 180, CYA 30-50
