    Possibly black algea

    That’s what I thought. He insist the black algae is there and has been a couple of years. Says water has been in pool 7 years and hasn’t touched pool since last season

    Possibly black algea

    Is it necessary to drain then acid wash an inground finite pool to get rid of the algea? Asking for a friend, he thinks it’s black algea.

    Return sending dirt back to pool

    Thanks will try. My filter is less than a year old. I think maybe rinsing a Lil longer may help. When I turn filter back on it comes out clear then has a burst of dirt then back to clear

    Return sending dirt back to pool

    I vacuumed my pool to filter, turned off pump, backwashed till clear, rinsed until clear then turned back to filter only to see dirt return to the pool. Why is this happening?

    Green pool, help

    yes. I think I found the culprit of algae. Took the ladder out of the pool and it was full of algae on the inside. The ladder was used, we soaked it and cleaned thoroughly or so we thought. Have taken ladder out and I guess the next step is to slam the pool. Going to test again, make sure...
