    Algae after Ascorbic Acid treatment

    I treated with ascorbic acid over the last 2 days. This morning, I woke up and saw the water has turned green. I just added 96 oz of 6% bleach. How long should it take the bleach to dissolve? Also, should this be sufficient to remove the algae?

    Answer: fast!

    I was surprised.

    Bleach is already dissolved, so that's a trick question!

    However, it disperses throughout the bulk pool water very fast indeed!
