About a month ago, I took my Confer Steps out for the winter (because they slow the flow and cause algae problems) and had a slight algae bloom, so I did a slam. My water is fluctuating between 65 and 70 degrees, so my FC is not dropping but .5 ppm per day.
For the last few weeks, I've been noticing small orangish/yellowish patches on the pool floor that come up with one pass of the brush, unless I let it sit more than a day, then it can take a few passes. I was chalking it up to pollen since we have a fall pollen season. My FC level has been between 5 and 6 ppm, no CC's.
I vacuumed yesterday, but had small patches AGAIN TODAY and even on small patch of green algae. (The green algae patch was noticeably different from what I've been seeing with the orange/yellow patches). The water seemed a bit dull so now I'm slamming.
Should I go ahead and SLAM for mustard algae after I finish the regular SLAM?
My levels prior to the SLAM were:
Thanks in advance.
