I have gone thru **** with a mix of metals and algae. I see you told someone to put the sequestrant in first before shocking.. How long do I need to wait to shock after adding it? 24hrs, 6 Hrs, .. I remember reading several places that said you should really wait at least a week before you shock after you use Absorbic A and then the sequestrant to remove metals. Which I have done about a week ago..Kept chlorine very low thru this week with high temps.. My kids were in the pool last night and said the bottom felt slimy. I know it is because the Chlorine is not high enough and I'm sure algae is starting in there. SO today, exactly one week from when I did the last AA / seq treatment, I just added a maintenance dose of sequestrant. I need to get the chlorine higher but want to give the metal free enough time before I shock so my metals dont reappear. I have some of the cal-shock from Leslie's.. DO you recommend waiting a day or just shocking in about 6-8 hrs??? Or still not shocking and use bleach or what>?? . I am in the ENDLESS CYCLE, fighting between the metal and the algae.. Any help is appreciated.. Thanks Lesa
Ps. I also added a 4oz. maintenance amount of ALL purpose algaecide. (Dupont-40% is dimethyl benzylammonium chloride and 60% other ingredients??
