How many sprays do you recommend on a black algea spot and do I place sprayer on top of black algea or from a short distance say 1” ?The method with the pump sprayer works much better than a chlorine tablet. At least for me. Its quicker and more precise. Its also easier.
Ideally brush, them apply LC, then brush, apply LC, repeat.
A mask and snorkel will be useful for this.
So this is not a recommended approach buy I have used it in the past. You might want to use a weak pressure washer to hit some of the larger patches. You have to be very careful to not damage your plaster. Then use the LC on those spots.
I get my chlorine for either of those sources you mentioned. It is strong and fresh, and cheap.
Which sprayer do you recommend for underwater bleach application ? I found this sprayer for bleach application on Amazon but does not say anything about underwater use.Two or three sprays seem to work for me, but every case is different. Think about it as removing layers. You scrape away a layer then kill it, scrape away some more and kill it. Until you have gotten it all.
1” away is fine.
I would also take on a section, and take before and after pictures. Mainly because we like pictures and to prove to your wife that you can do it.
I can also promise you the pool “professionals” will not do as good of a job as you. There is more experience on this forum, then 1000 of them.
Another trick is pour LC directly from the jug down the wall where you have the black algae. It will be concentrated there for a few seconds before it disperses but it make a difference. You waste more chlorine that way but hit bigger spots. But remember chlorine is cheap, marriage is expensive.
My mask, bbq picks, goggles are coming in today just need sprayer. I’ll get it from HD.That one is fine. Or if you want it today, just go to lowes or Home Depot and pick one up. They are all pretty much the same for this application. Starting sooner is better than later.
Ain't gonna find a pool guy to do that.Since you have a wide spread outbreak start with the SS brush. Save the picks for the deep stubborn ones. Picking all those out one by one will make you crazy.
Brush, spray, brush, spray. You should notice a difference very quickly.
Yes, but BA clinging on to wall for dear life. Thank you for asking here are some pics.Sooooooooo?

Just lost my magnetic smart stir pill.
Is it safe to jump in the pool say Sunday with my son ? Or should I wait until BA completely gone?
