cause of recurring cloudy green water

Hi, I had posted to a couple of these during the last few weeks and wanted to post the solution to our 3+ month battle against cloudy green water, we had actually cleared it 3 times with other suggestions in this forum, but after a couple of days it would cloud again and go back to all green.

We thought we had scrubbed every surface in the pool to get rid of algae spores but we had never moved our drop in steps, they've been in for over 10 years and we've never had a problem. My husband accidentally moved them last week and found tons of green algae outside and inside the sand bags that weigh them down and all over the inside of the steps. That was on the 2nd day after we had gotten our water clear for the 4th time, we pulled all the sandbags and the steps out of the pool, did a normal shock treatment that night and the pool has been clear ever since and holding a normal chlorine reading.

Just something to think about if you're having the nightmare summer we had been having...
