Thanks for all the advice in advance.
I am curious about 2 pool issues and hope it is okay to put in one thread. Here goes.
1. bird poo everywhere even on the leaf net (thought they would not like the texture and would stay out of my pool but I was wrong ) Since they won't leave my pool alone, can I ever expect to have a OCLT that shows I'm done with the shock process?
2. After shocking, brushing and vacuuming repeatedly, I still have small very dark clumps that accumulate on the bottom of my pool. Is that probably dead algae? And eventually my vacuuming will pick it all up? The water was cloudy when I started the shock process and after 1 1/2 days the water is looking much clearer. I am still continuing the shock process.
