it say mix with water first, then pour it around pool. it dissolve very fast in the bucket.
i added DE few days ago, filter worked better with DE. but i stop when i add Calcium. i dont know about them too much so i dont want to make mistake if use them same time.

nothing come out the return. but yesterday i saw some air bubble come out. maybe because the water level is low?


oh can i add bleach now? chlorine lv is low

add chlorine even if im adding calcium?
water a bit cloudy now, i think, because when i turn on the light, water pass the light have too many little things, like bubble or dust (not sure)
i just added about 6 7 lbs "calcium increaser" today, the number from 130 to 180 now, maybe not have to do all of 25lbs

It may be mustard algea but it should sweep away. Very Important.. Was it always there? Does it sweep away with a brush?

We need to know first. May just need to shock again. It is possible we could lower phosphates but your pool will cload if you add that IMO. All those other mustard out, yellow out stuff is amonia based and will mess up the pool further..

Adding borates may be best before any phosphate remover...

I still think your filter may have issues, but let me know if that stuff sweeps away. It may just be a stain....

Post all your test results again... Possibly you are letting your chlorine levels dip...

Stains can be calcium leaching. algea, or organic in nature....

If it did not sweep away its not algae...

It may be a stain of some sort... Possibly rust deposit on etched area of cement/plaster. Thats may be from adding acid.

I would not worry about it right now...

See pitting etching here..

i think i should more attention to my pool. that's my fault huh?
i always run the filter 8-10 hours/day. and shut off at the evening.
I realized that every morning when I wake up it reappears ( the stain )
and then when i turn on the filter, it gradually disappears after 2-3 hours.

i also think like you. maybe my filter has issues. dont know what i should do now.....
