Hoping this is the correct thread.
We have been having a very tough time in the last year and a half getting the algae under control in our pool. Nothing I did seemed to keep it at bay. Turns out after I took apart and cleaned the filter elements, I put everything back together and our main pump would prime for 30 seconds and trip the breaker and it sounded like the motor was going out. So, after two weeks of waiting ( meanwhile dumping gallons of Cl in the pool ); Finally got the pump replaced with a new Hayward Ecostar VS.
I could see the algae clinging for dear life to our pebble sheen surface. So I drained the pool and pressure washed the surface of the pool. Glad I did - it was absolutely disgusting. Anyhow. Filled the pool. Starting from ground zero.
I have the TF-100 kit. Here are my numbers:
FC: ZERO ( obviously )
Ca Hardness: 50ppm
I checked the recommended numbers in this forum - so I have those - and I used the pool chem calc...
So now what do I do FIRST?
Can I just follow the pool calc recommendations... and stagger the addition of the chemicals?
Assistance is appreciated.
