Been having trouble with my puck fed pool and algae blooms. Algae was growing on floor particularly around edges. Shocked and shocked and couldnt get pool to stay clean. Brushing bottom would bring up grey looking dust. Went to pool store and tried some bromine but a week later and the algae is back. Finally got a Taylor K2600 test kit and giving up on the pool store. As you might expect my CYA is off the charts. Here are the measurements:
CYA: ~ 450!
From pool store measurements:
I'd like to get this under control and with such high CYA and Hardness it appears draining and BBB appears to be the right option. Agree?
I live in a protected water shed and can't drain to the storm sewer unless the chlorine residue is less than 0.01 mg/L. Also would need to figure out to limit the flow.
I have some vegetated areas in my yard but not sure they are large enough to handle 10k gallons without bad effects (hurting trees / bushes / etc ).
Any draining advice? Am I better off getting the FC down and risk the pool getting greener then drain? How about draining 2k per day?
