A year and half ago we bought this house, the first summer with the pool was good. Since then it's been algae bloom after algae bloom. Ordered my TF-100 test kit today and added the XL option. The pool is gunite and 15000 gallons. I'm currently in the process of draining the pool and refilling it. While it's empty I plan doing a light pressure washing, vacuum out undissolved shock and debris with the shop-vac, then refill.
I currently have an old test kit and various test strips until my TF-100 arrives. Should I wait until until the pool is full before I start adding liquid bleach or add a little at a time? What about the stabilizer? What are some tips from the TFP community?
