    Did cheap shock product cause bubbles in the pool?

    We have been trying to get our pool open for weeks. Just had the heater fixed finally and the liner locked back in has been a time. Yesterday, my husband finally got to vacuum the deep end and there was tons of algae that made the water green again. Late last night he went and got some cheaper shock than we normally use and this morning our entire pool has what look like soap bubbles floating in the pool. Could it be the shock he used? Is there something wrong with the chemicals he used? I am worried there may be something in the pool now that is harmful (not that anyone is swimming in it). Ideas?? He will get the water tested again, but just so weird.. we have never had bubbles in the pool before!

    Normal. Check out the pictures. A little encouragement for those with algae and new to BBB
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
