    Green on the rocks

    I've been working all work at fine tuning my water feature. (See help-my-water-feature-is-slowly-trying-to-kill-my-pool-t60982.html)

    Now that I have my water feature all figured out to reduce standing water every day and I've shopvac'd as much gunk as I can out of it. What's the best method to take care of the green algae that was in some of the smaller puddles on the rocks? Just dose it with some super chlorinated water?

    Here's a pic:

    I would. Wear old clothes when you scrub.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I've already ruined some work clothes just grabbing bleach at Walmart on my way home! I have some 8% bleach, any recommendations for how much to throw in to some water? The puddles are very small

    You're killing it in the pool at parts per million. A cup in a gallon of water would be something like 62500 ppm! You figure it out

    Haha, yeah I kind of stopped thinking about it and just added some bleach to my cup of water and put it in there
