Question about Pentair Kreepy Krauly Inground Automatic Cleaner
If you have a sand filter, algae can grow inside the tank. Even if you shock the pool water and backwash, the algae will not "die" inside the filter tank.
To completely get rid of algae in a sand filter, you will need to remove all the sand from the filter. Then break the internal parts apart, soak them in a 4:1 bleach water mixture,1 part bleach. You may want to wipe the parts off with a towel, or something, to remove all the algae. You will also need to scrub out the inside of the tank with more bleach water.
Once this is finished, you will need to replace the sand with brand new sand and reassemble the filter. This is the only way to completely remove algae from a sand filter.
