I have an algae problem I need to get rid of. I have read the how to on how to do this but first have a question on whether I can get away without shocking (more curiosity than anything, and saves me a trip to the pool store)
I have a 19,000 gal vinyl pool and a SWG for a 45,000 pool. I normally run it on 10-20%
I saw some cloudiness on Friday and kicked it up to 100%. Yesterday I did a set of tests, numbers are below:
I had the SWG running at 100% all day, this morning my FC is up to 14 ppm, with no CC. If I just keep running the SWG until I get about 20 ppm will that do what I need for the algae, or is too slow of an increase? I read in the how to that a SWG will not get the chlorine high enough slowly, I just don't understand if I can get my FC up high enough that will be good enough.
