Algae in Above Ground Pool
We have a 24 ft. round above ground pool that I can't seem to get clean. We have debris on the bottom of the pool, it looks white, along with green, almost in the shape of "small" worms, (sorry that's the only way to describe it.) I have been shocking the pool, brushing it, and then vacuuming it, but I cant seem to get it all up.
I have used an algae treatment, but it is seeming impossible to clear it off the bottom. When it does get stirred up, it has a very rank smell, almost a dead smell. Any good suggestions for me??? I have been told to try and super shock it, by adding way more shock than I normally do, is this a good way to go? Any suggestions would be great! Thanks so much!
Hi Mishon. Yes, I would shock the pool and run the filter non stop until you get rid of this stuff. Vinyl shock treatment and running the filter non stop are my secrets to getting rid of most any water problems. If anyone else has had this particular problem we would love to hear from you. Let us know what worked for you.
