I am NOT,NOT,NOT a happy camper. I want (desperately NEED)to close this dang pool and forget about it for a while.
I am just SO over it. I cannot even tell ya. This mustard algae **** I've been dealing with since JULY!! Argh.
I'm sick of it. Can't get rid of it no matter what I do. (where is the crying uncontrollably, basket case smiley??? )
Seriously, we even took the steps out thinking there were little %^^&&^$#$$#$#%^ algae behind or around it and still we have algae. I have raised the chlorine and kept it there-MANY times, vacuumed, backwashed, blah, blah,blah....followed advice here to the "T" and still we have algae. I'm ready to take the thing down completely.
So, now that I've ranted and raved how do I close the stupid thing? I put a bottle of algaecide in about 3 weeks ago and am now in the process (yet again!) of bleaching the heck out of the water to try to rid it of the algae. I swear, my neighbors (and the recycle guys!) must be wondering what the heck we are doing with all those bleach bottles...the extra large ones at that!
I'm actually on my way to Costco for more bleach as soon as I finish this post.
HELP me....tell me what I need to do to close. What about the algae with closing?
Thanks for any help.
