    Still have brown/green blobs on bottom of pool

    I have been Slamming my pool for 3 days now. I have removed all the brown stuff from the walls and most of the bottom is clear. However I still have brown green blobs and streaks on 20% of the bottom. I have scrubbed and scrubbed.

    FC 12
    pH 7.6
    CYA approx 20 I am bringing this up and have a sock in the skimmer
    TA 170
    CH 400

    The water is crystal clear and inviting. (it is a little cloudy in this pic because I just finished scraping/brooming)

    How Long will I be slammin and scrubbin to get that off the bottom (part of my problem is I have some wrinkles and the bottom is a little uneven)?
    Can I get in the pool and use a green scrubby from the kitchen (new of course) and put it under my feet and scrub that way> would that help?
    What would happen if my FC is that high and I did it?



    Thank You for your help. This site is awesome

    Is the FC too high for me to jump in now?

    No. Anything up to SLAM level for your CYA is safe.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    That would very likely help and cause no harm whatsoever.
