Here is my situation. First of all we have had tons of rain in the DFW area. So constant battle with keeping pool water level at a manageable level, maintaining chem balances etc....
About a week ago I go out one morning and notice around the edges of the pool's swinouts, steps and the safety ledge that runs the entire bottom around the pool and a couple areas on the walls in the deep end what looked like maybe a build up of dirt like substance due to the all the rain. So I get the trustee Aqua Bot out and brush the entire pool and let cleaner do its thing. Now the water has never really looked cloudy, buts it's hard to tell since most days in the last several weeks are overcast. I can see the bottom. The above process cleans up the pool nicely and at night with the light on is when it looks clearer.
Test results over the last week are
FC 3.5 to 4 depending on what day and time test was done
PH 7.4 to depending on day tested
wtr temp has varied from 71-78F
Cart filter was cleaned a couple days ago.
So last evening I see the same thing appearing. So at 8PM start the OCLT FC 4, CC 0.5
This morning at 7AM FC 4, CC 0.5
I then go thru the same process of brush and run Aqua Bot. I very carefully swiped as area with my finger to see if I could tell if it is just dirt deris or something else.
It appears to be slightly green in color. So I am assuming that I have a extremely mind beginning of an algae bloom even though the OCLT passed.
So should I SLAM anyway?
