I'm new to TFP and after reading the forums have decided that Sam's Club Shock in bags and 3" pucks have created major issues with my CA this year. I guess I've been doubling the Stabilizer without knowing it. Just now learned I could get rid of these and utilize liquid chlorine like Clorox.
Current Readings- Pool store test today. Will purchase a nice tester soon.

I had turned off the Auto Chlorinator with 3" pucks last week, but then the Algae started to grow. Not bad just on deep end on walls. Brushed the floor & walls yesterday and I shocked with Liquid Clorox Bleach. Took the water sample this morning to Pool Store for reading. Algae has cleared up mostly this morning.
1) I know procedure is to pump out water to 1 ft above shallow end and replace to cut the CA down- are there any other options?
2) Is the algae a direct result of not having enough FC to get the algae?
Any other suggestions?
