Once my Taylor K2006 kit arrives (ordered 3 days ago), should I start the shock process at night or does it matter? Also, I understand that the first day I'll be testing FC every hour or two to maintain MA shock level (is this only for 24 hours and then shock at normal shock level until I pass OCLT test?). Should I go slightly above MA shock level? I'm pretty sure what I have is mustard algae (will post pics if needed), looks like a powdery mustard color in my cartridge filter. I've tried Yellow Out a couple weeks ago with no success, then vacuumed to waste to get rid of the clumps on pool floor, then refilled pool with water(which should've lowered my CYA slightly). Next day started seeing streaks of algae, which are now clumps of algae again. The algae, which brushes away like dust, is only collecting on my pool floor. I'm ready to completely follow your advice and be rid if this algae once and for all! I've been maintaining a lower Ph and FC of about 7 based on the CYA reading the pool store gave me on May 1st. Once my kit arrives....I WILL NOT be going back! I feel sooo defeated by this monster! But once I start the process, should I treat the outside of the pool as well (including the ground cloth/tarp that my 24' Intex sits on? And at what point should I treat the pool solar cover/toys/floats? I have purchased 13 jugs(121 oz.) of 8.25% bleach, how many more would you suggest I buy to be prepared for shock process? Will the K2006 kit have enough testing reagents to complete the process or should I go ahead and order extra, if so, which reagents will I need ? Once I begin the shock process, will I be able to communicate with YOU each time and how long is your response time in case I feel uncertain about what to do next? Sorry about the ton of questions but I'm to the point of tears...no, really! I've read Pool School, will read again tonight. So thanks in advance for any advice!
