Brown circles?

Postby Kurt » Fri 23 Jun, 2006 11:14

Hi,

I seem to have light brownish almost orange circles (which turn to more of a patch if not taken care of right away)on the bottom and if I leave it long enough they go to the sides of my pool. I am assuming it is algae. I vacume to waste, put algacide in, and shock it but they still keep coming back???? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I would like to report that I did one more shock treatment and hopped in the pool with a scrub brush the next day. I am happy to say that my pool is crystal clear and after a few days they didn't come back. I guess the vacuum wasn't getting rid of all the algae. Scrubing and letting the filter take care of the rest and of course did a back wash as soon as the pool started to clear up worked very well.
