After struggling with high phosphates & a constant green tint (regardless of ch levels) I decided that since I already have 2 tubs of the phos floc I would do it now rather than try the Borates method first. I am definately NOT looking forward to this, it is a major pain, but I have to do it every summer. Once it is done, all my pool problems disappear for the remainder of the season.
I decided that someone may be interested to see pics as we progress with this treatment. If nothing else, maybe it will persuade those who are thinking about doing this, to try everything they can first to avoid the Phos-Floc.
Here are a couple of pics from before we added the Floc...Cl levels have been about 20ppm for several days but the green still lingers. You can see where we are making it cloud up by brushing it.
This one was taken about 2 hours after adding the floc. Pump has been running on recirculate...You can't hardly tell but the water is now a cloudy white color.
