[attachment=1bc66f3p]IMG_0403.JPG[/attachmentbc66f3p] these are my filter/pump and my SWG
intex ultraframe 16X48 SWG Ottawa Ontario (hope I am doing this right)
all was well til yesterday when I developed a bloom of green algae along the curved bottom of walls.
I went out got bleach, 2 way test kit, trichlor puck and floater.
10 am FC 0
Brushed walls and added 723 mil of bleach and puck in floater. reading 2 hours later at noon FC 2.5 Ph 7.8 brushed again (been running filter pump all day swg turned off)
3pm FC 0 ph 7.6
do I shock again?
do I turn on SWG tonight? (it is on timer)
will the pool store have a cya test kit?
my vac broke and all the stores within walking distance have **** stuff hence the 3 way test kit til tomorrow when I can go to pool store and get better. And no I am not gonna get pulled into their **** so no worries there just want better stuff than walmart sells any suggestions on good vacs for me? and nothing over 200 please!! If it is one that attaches to pump how do I do that? the one we had was the one you attach to your hose. I have pics of pool too but hard to see water with glare. Oh - full sun from 11am to 6pm most days. SWG runs 4 hours nightly weather been humid around 25-29 with humidex of 33-37
any opinions offerings of what to do to get it back to great is appreciated.
last q - backwashing? I need to do this with a cartridge filter or no?
