First spring as a pool owner. We didn't close our pool over the winter as we live in the South with usually mild winters.
My water is emerald green (kinda pretty really) so I'm assuming I need to SLAM. I've read through the SLAM instructions and Pool School but I've got a couple questions.
I have a nice layer of green algae at the bottom of the pool. My thoughts are to:
1. Vacuum first
2. Brush the sides of pool to dislodge everything
3. Take readings and start the SLAM process by dumping in bleach
4. Keep pump/filter going the entire time
Is this essentially the correct steps to be taking?
