    Blue Lagoon for the 2nd year in a row

    Not sure what I'm missing in closing, but I opened today to another blue lagoon.

    TA 70
    Ph 7.8

    I've vac'd 5 inches of water to waste and stopped. Still lots left in the deep end. Should I hit it with Bleach tonight or wait until I can get more of it out tomorrow?

    Thanks

    If that was covered, the sludge in the bottom is just algae, not compost. If so, I'd start with the bleach tonight. Dead algae is easier to vacuum up. You also won't have sunlight robbing the FC overnight. I'd set the filter on recirculate so it doesn't clog up while you sleep.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
