    newbie trying to get rid of algea

    Everything is great now thanks to everyone on this forum. The only issue I currently have is some sediment/dirt that I am having trouble getting vacuumed up thanks to the under powered pump. But other than that the pool water is very clear & the pool is literally squeaky clean.

    newbie trying to get rid of algea

    I dropped my pole into the pool. Since the FC is at shock level but CC is at .5, how bad would it be if I climbed into the pool? What would it do to my skin?

    newbie trying to get rid of algea

    thanks for the info. Algae was back when I woke up. This morning FC is 21, CC is 1. I used the pool calculator & added the amount of bleach it said to bring FC up to 24. Do I need to run my SWG longer than normal to keep it at shock level? Right now I have it running for 5hrs a day.
