Well I am the proud owner of a new home with a 30000 gal SWG pool. This is my first pool which I have only had for a week now and while I am trying to learn everything to keep up with it it developed an algae outbreak 3 days ago. Prior to the outbreak the FC levels were 4.0, ph 7.9, ALK 80ppm. The whole pool went from crystal clear to a jade green color in a few days. I am in SC and it have been in the 90s here with the water temp 85. I began shocking 2 days ago. first day was 3 LBS of cal hypo, 24 hrs later the FC PPM was only 3.0. The pool store suggested to double shock and superchlorante on the salt cell which I did last night and continue every 24 hrs until it breaks. I used my test kit which only reads up to 5 on CL but it seems to read up at least that high.Visually there is no change so I plan on adding another 6 lbs tonight. In addition the past 2 days there seems to be little clumps of green bubbles in the pool which reminds me of pond scum (jeez hope it isnt that bad) they went away last night but are back today. I am also continually scrubbing the sides and running my Polaris 9350 robot which is picking up what seems to be algae sludge (looks like green pea baby food ). I do keep adding Muranic acid to keep the ph under control as I do this. Anyway just want to be sure I am on the right track and not wasting time I really want to get in some swim time after buying this house and pool before the season ends. Any advice is appreciated.
