I'm new to the forum, my first post was about an ongoing battle with mustard algae that resulted in me pumping out the pool to about 12" to lower my CYA level that was over 200. The water will be at about 12" today and I have a truck coming to fill tomorrow morning. I was going to vacuum to waste any visible algae in the bottom of the pool this afternoon.
I believe the correct thing is to SLAM the pool after it is refilled? Then test to see if the chlorine has dropped overnight, keep slamming until the level does not drop? Should I slam to the algae level? Is it safe to swim in the pool during the slamming process? Should I do anything to the filter?
Should I post my test results after the re-fill for guidance?
After I have the chemistry straightened out I'd like to go to a SWG, I have someone coming over to give me a price today.
Thanks for the free advice!!!!
