    What you're likely seeing is the reaction with chlorine. It's normally and should go away quickly. Might also indicate that your water has slightly high level of metals.

    A full two pound bottle will treat 60,000 gallons. One capful is about enough for 10,000 gallons.

    You might want to check your filter. It should trap the dead algae. It might just need to run a little longer. If you see some of the algae still coming out the returns then you'll need to tear-down your filter and see if something is wrong.

    Is it okay to use Calcium Hypochlorite with this product?

  2. Jim Guyton

    Yellow Treat completely removed mustard algae from my pool. However, I get a zero reading for chlorine, and I have added 5 pounds of shock chlorine.

    • Scott Hamilton

      This can happen depending on your type of chlorine. I would chlorinate as normal and use an OTO test for the chlorine (they are more accurate). I wouldn’t advise to continue to shock, since this can cause staining (and can be expensive). Although your test is giving you a zero reading – the pool shouldn’t develop algae (it’s more of a false reading). If the problem hasn’t subsided in a week, call us and we can diagnose why your pool is continuing to have this problem. Thanks!
