I had the dreaded mustard algae in my pool for way too long. It literally looked like a lake in just a few days (away for the weekend). The beginning stages I thought was due to the hard water and was treating metal when it, in fact was algae. Anyway, got that taken care of and pool is a nice blue. However, I have extremely cloudy water. So I got a super flok and treated yesterday. Woke up this morning and could see the bottom. Totally clear water. However, when I turned the filter back on to vacuum the residue on the bottom, the jets blew the cloudy water right back into my pool! I am thinking my mistake was not backwashing after the flok treatment. I had backwashed then put the flok in then let it filter for 2 hours as the directions stated, then shut it down. I am thinking I blew it in not backwashing before shutting it down?
I vacuumed what I could and backwashed and shut it down again. Do I need more flok or will it settle again? Do you think with backwashing the jets won't blow the clouds back in? thanks for any help. Pulling my hair out here.
