    Vacuum to waste when algae present???

    Helping my daughter with her inherited pool. In the SLAM process now. About to vacuum some of the algae that is visible in shallow end. Question is should I vacuum to waste when there is algae or can I vacuum on filter setting? Don't wanna lose too much of the bleach we've been adding all day. HELP please!! Here's some pics.

    Note: this is my daughter's pool, not the one I have listed in my signature. This is a 25k gallon inground pool with vinyl liner. Keeping chlorine levels at 16 using bleach for SLAM.

    Vacuuming to waste is certainly fine if there is a lot of debris settled out.
