This is a great forum, and we have learned from this site. Thanks.
I'm getting frustrated as well with this "algae" thing. A little over a month ago (right after 4th of July) we started getting green algae bloom. Nipped it and got it, at least we thought. Left town for a few days, and what do you know...a very green pool. Well, although it has taken some time to get the pool to where we can see the bottom again, we got rid of Mr. Algae.
Ok so this morning I'm out brushing the pool and notice some hints of green in certain areas....arrrrrrrggggh!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe it, BUT... I was wondering with the pool being too hot will that HELP algae to set up house. This morning the pool was 95, like bath water. I have the solar set at 89. I told my DH maybe we should just run the pump at night, that way the pool wouldn't be so hot. He was told because of the extreme hot temps here, we should be running the pump during the hottest times of the day. Which do we do, day or night pump running?
We're still trying to get the hang of this, learning as we go.
