    Getting ready to refill pool after fixing a crack

    As I continue to pump water out of my pool to get to the crack near the main drain, I've noticed lines of dead algae on the dry parts of the pool. Almost like water lines, but green.

    Before I fix and fill my pool, I'm wondering if these lines are going to be a problem. Do I need to somehow scrub or power wash these lines out or will they disappear once the pool is full and chlorinated?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Once the pool is filled follow the SLAM process to kill the algae.
