i am reading how to combat the algae for control of my pool, a 24 foot round above ground with 48" walls, it has gotten out of control and now i have to reclaim it. i had water sampled at a local pool shop, but obviously the advice i was given was bogus.i have used bicarb from pool place to raise ph to 7.8 then 4 lbs shock, waited a bit then added floc, which is not working. i am deducing the floc isnt working because of live algae as my fc and tc are nearly zero again.so i am shocking with bleach now since my stabilizer reading is around 45.
always something. carp3nt3r.
