1. Seems like you have to expose toys, hoses, nets, etc to mustard shocked pool water. Does this include running the heater, as well? Is there a concern about running high Cl water through a heat pump heater?
2. If left untreated, meaning maintaining Cl at normal operating levels for your CYA, will mustard algae typically spread?
Just got off of one pool issue and now have the seemingly common issue of determining whether I have pollen/dirt or mustard algae. My pool blaster has the sand/silt bag which I think is about 8 microns and this sandy darkish substance at the pool bottom vacuums up with the pool blaster but I see it coming out the sides in a cloud so it comes back. Even put a 5 micron filter over the pool blaster's bag and seems like the material won't be caught. I'm going to vacuum it to waste today.
