    How long till Mustard Algae reappears?

    How long does it normally take for mustard algae to reappear on the pool bottom if you have vacummed the bottom clean and are at normal FC levels(not shock level)

    I would say you will see it in two days if it was going to appear again. I would have to believe your water is warm. Since the storm (Fay) is coming near you, why don't you shock, brush the pool and wait for the storm to pass?

    The algea that I just got rid of( I hope) would reappear the next day. If I cleaned it up in the evening it was back the next evening.

    Did you ever determine for sure if yours was algea, newnick?
    I'm still not certain if its what I have and am trying to avoid a big time shock session thats gonna make the pool unswimmable for a few days.
