I just finished testing my water with a Dave's kit and have the final results.
I've had an algie bloom on the bottom of the pool for the past two weeks, but without a reliable test kit I have winged it with test strips. Houston, Texas is about to become extremely hot over the summer so I'm not sure the best way to go about getting rid of the algie and whether or not I should raise the CYA level. Any responses are appreciated as I plan on attacking the pool tonight. I already have 16 gallons of 6% bleach, 8 lbs of baking soda, and 1 gallon of muriatic acid ready for action.
