My current numbers 30,000 gallons vinyl liner
I've shocked in the past got it stabilized where no algae growing for weeks ... test twice a day most days never let the pool get below 3 fc ...almost all the time between 4.5 and 6
Today it poured and poured pool filled up 4 inches with rainwater ..... just took my readings which you see above. pump is off from 1pm to 6pm on goodcents Gulf Power Electric electric save cost. Other than those 5 hours pump runs the rest of the time.
Algae was back in full force tonight on the bottom I cleaned with vac to waste. I and my other buddies have had terrible problems with algae this year. They want me to put in algae killer the copper stuff I don't want to but am losing patience.
Help any ideas
OH also have had problems with yellow/brownish powder on seams and small spots on bottom in same spot every day ...I say powder, because when you rouch it it goes pooofff. no slimy feel to it at all. I put white cotton socks on my returns stopped the problem untill today with the deluge of rain we had we had.
