I just joined this forum/website- don't ask why I haven't found it before! So, I'm a first time poster!!
We are in desperate need of some help....we have a huge algae problem!
Here are the details:
Vinyl Liner pool - in ground
Around 3 feet deep in shallow end, about 8 feet deep in deep end
Just under 30,000 gallons
I had a chemical test done today at the local pool store and below is the read out:
Total Chlorine: 7
Free Chlorine: 5.7
Total Alkalinity: 120
Adj.Total Alkalinity: 94
Total Hardness: 100
We just added some "filtration aid" to the skimmer line. We have a Hayward Sand Filter system.
As you see from the pic, it is BAD. I asked the people at the pool store how to "kill" the algae - they claim my high chlorine should be doing it (adding super chlorine) on Saturday.
can anyone help? Of course we are having a heat crazy now, and it is predicted to be near 100 for the next 7 days in good 'ol Iowa.
Thanks in advance!
