So I've been fighting to clear my pool for 3 weeks. I made progress to the point where I was starting to see the bottom of the shallow end. I remembered that I had not really scooped out leaves in the deep end all that much so I decided to do that this morning.
OMG. I probably have pulled 15-20 pool nets full of leaves out. All scoops were full with algae. Could this be why my pool was not clearing? I'm slamming it now and it is losing 3ppm of chlorine. I'm shocking at 20. Hourly it is dropping to 17. When should I expect an improvement?
