I ask because 20 lbs of dichlor will add 60 ppm CYA to that pool. Add in continued tablet use and I find 40 PPM CYA to not be a believable number.
If you’re keeping the pool at shock level per the cya, the algae will die. Period. Something isn’t adding up here, and in my opinion it’s the testing numbers. A good kit like a Taylor K2006 will tell the true story

Can you please post pictures of the pool and equipment pad? If you are a pool professional what test kit do you use?

I have a Taylor kit and Aquacheck silver strips. Don't have a pic of the equipment pad but it consists of Whisperflow 1hp, TA-60, 2 valves suction side one for skimmer one for main drain, 1 return line devided into 4 eyeball returns. 1 cut out Polaris pump, Pentair offline chlorinator and an old dog toy.

Thanks. You will be very benefited if you purchased a Taylor K2006C, which will help you in your job from here on. We would only be helpful if you post test result from this type of kit, FAS-DPD(we dont trust pool store test or guess strips). Any pool that has algae needs to follow a proper SLAM Process, to do so you will need to test the pool every few hours, not just 2 times a week. Please post a full set of test result with the Taylor K-2006C like this:
