I'm battling Algae again and have been slamming for about a week and 2 days now. The issue I'm having is not being able to pass the oclt.
There is currently no trace of algae on the surface of the pool wall (algae was originally found in the grout lines of the tiles); however it seems like something is consuming the chlorine. I lose about 17 FCs during the day and about 3 FCs overnight.
My test results prior to slamming
FC - 0
PH -7.8 reduced to 7.2 before slamming
On a side note, I went to Leslie's to buy liquid chlorine since they have a special and the guy knows that I have a swcg pool. He proceeds to tell me that I should not be putting liquid chlorine in the pool and I need an algaecide to kill all algae and then I need to put phosphate removal to keep algae away.
He also said I need to bring in a sample for him to test. I told him I'll be nice and bring a sample.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
