My father in law just got a SWG. I know NOTHING about it and neither does he. He thinks that it's going to cure everything despite me trying for the past 3 years to get him to switch to the BBB method and explaining that a SWG is not a cure-all. I guess since I'm a girl, he thinks I'm stupid...despite the fact that my pool has looked amazing for 6 years.
He has struggled with his pool for the past 3 years. Yesterday he FINALLY let me go test his water. His water is green. CYA is 0. There is 0 chlorine reading. Alkalinity was in the 300's. PH is within normal range.
He has his SWG turned down as low as it would go. I told him to throw about 2 bags of shock in, brush the pool really well and to turn the swg all the way up. He REFUSES to use bleach. I told him right now the goal is to kill the algae and then we will go from there. He is wanting to throw in all kinds of acid and some "green out". I was almost on the verge of grabbing him by his shirt collar and screaming at him to "KILL THE ALGAE FIRST!!!!".
Did I give him the wrong info? lol
