I started a new thread for your post. It is confusing to everyone when two posters are asking question within the same thread (Hi-jacking). Plus, posting your question in a new Thread is more likely to get responses. --duraleigh, TFP Moderator
I have a few questions about the SLAM for mustard algae.
1. On this site http://www.troublefreepool.com/conte...-mustard-algae it says "you first SLAM the pool normally, following the directions in How To SLAM Your Pool. Once you have completed SLAMing your pool in the standard way, raise the FC level up to the extra high mustard algae shock level for 24 hours." But how can I SLAM it normally and pass a over night FC test if the mustard algae is still there? Won't it make me fail the test every time and therefore I'll never complete the SLAM and be able to do the mustard algae level for the next 24 hrs?
2. It says to brush the entire pool and in the light fixture and things. I will need to get in the pool to take out the light fixture. Isn't it not recommended to get in a pool with my FC level at mustard algae levels (15 with a CYA of 20)?
3. I have a sand filter, do you think I should add that DE to it? And if so where can I get it? My ace hardwear didn't have it.
