13k gal AG with a sand filter (hp not known right now)
I have been fighting mustard algae for 2 weeks. I have found a lot of helpful info here, but got a question. I'm going to SLAM the pool to get rid of algae ,pool place keeps selling me algacide which is not helping so time to try something else. We have been vacuuming to waste but algae keeps coming back. The pool place keeps telling me not to add stabilizer yet cause my levels are not right but I can't get my chlorine levels up cause the algae is eating it up. The chart for SLAMing on here starts at 20CYA but my CYA levels are only at 10. Should I go ahead and add stabilizer before starting the SLAMing and if so how long do I wait before bringing my FC levels up to shock?
