Hello - I haven't been here in a while, but here in Austin, TX, it's been a very warm Fall and start to the Winter. Obviously we're not using the pool right now, and since I've been neglecting it a bit because of the down time, I've got a pretty good little algae bloom going. I have a 0 FC level and a PH of 7.8 - why do I feel like a kid who's done something wrong and knows it
My question is, should I treat it (very familiar with the BBB method which brought my pool back to life this summer thanks to this board), or just let it be, knowing that we have a major cold front coming in tonight and that the low temps will be in the 30's and 40's for the next week and beyond. Will the cold temps take care of the algae on it's own or should I do a shock treatment this weekend to help clear it up so I'm not looking at a green swamp all winter?
As always, much appreciated!
