    Help with algae

    Hi,
    Clear water but quite green. Main pump was broken for almost 30 days, and we've had tons of organics in Dallas. Putting on house on market in one week, and need pool to be blue for pictures in 6 days!!!

    Advice from local pool store was to rent a sump pump and drain top layer. Said high chlorine can cause chlorine to attach to other chlorine instead of algae. Never heard of this. Thoughts on what to do now?
    30,000 gal salt with spa; built 2006; Jandy 2 hp single speed Stealth; 48 sf Pentair DE filter; Pentair 4 wheel cleaner; Jandy 1400 SWG and 1400PLC salt cell. New filter grids, cleaner pump.

    A picture would be helpful.

    You need to SLAM the pool. Have you read on the forum enough to be familiar with that?

    How are you testing?
