Late last year I had to slam my pool due to algae. I caught it early but I know I kept my pool above shock level for too long because I started getting burnt orange spots in the bottom of my pool. I would always add the chlorine in the morning before work but take it higher than my shock level since I had to work all day and couldn't add anymore until evening. For the first couple of weeks I thought my green algae turned into the mustard algae so I kept slamming my pool HARD. I finally realized, after passing the OCLT test, that my green algae was gone and the orange sediment was more than likely rust sediment. This happened late last summer. I was having to vacuum everyday due to the sediment but it did start to get a lot better before I closed the pool. Now I'm just wondering what my pool is going to look like when I open this year. I know it has to due with the high chlorination and not a problem from my fill water because I've had a pool over the last 6 years and never had this to happen before. I just hate that it didn't completely clear up before I closed.
If I have this sediment in my pool at opening should I vacuum to waste instead of filter? I have never vacuumed to waste before. Mabye this would help get it all out faster? I'm planning for the worst but hoping for the best. I added a link to the thread from last year regarding this. Hopefully I did it right. Thanks in advance!
