Also I keep noticing on like my intake screens of my pumps it turn a rust looking color. Im running phosban... Im wondering if this might be what this is?
Does it blow/rinse off easily? If not I would suspect diatoms or some other type of algae. Many times diatoms are a sign of high silicate. The fact you have red slime makes me think you might have elevated PO4
levels present as well. Do you use RO
water? If so what is the TDS
? Can you list your water parameters -SG
, Ph, Ca
, Temp, ammo, nitrite, nitrate, PO4
and/or Silicate levels in your source water may explain the rusty algae growth in the SW
mixing can as well.
