It is often called "pink algae", but is actually a bacteria that is hard to get rid of. See your pool supplier. It's appearance often coincides with many overcast or rainy days. It especially loves the white plastic plumbing pools have. I have found the red algae to be pH related. In particular it is encouraged by an acid condition. So, balalnce the pH, then shock the pool.

buy a large bottle of vitamin C tablets. crush them into a very fine powder. Turn off your pool filter so the water is still and sprinkle the vitamin C powder on to your steps so they sink down onto the steps. The steps will instantly turn white

Drain your pool, then scrub the walls and floor with pool cleaner.

You could wash your pool walls with pool acid.

Calafornia and it looks like brick stone walls on the outside with a hot tube with a pool. It's huge. Shailene's room is neon pink walls, and her bed is brown with lite pink dots with a wooden backboard.

1 to 2 hrs. New answer: By pool powder - do you mean dry chlorine? Minimum time may be about 20 minutes with a good circulation system. That too, depends on the quantity of the "pool powder".
