I see no reason why you can't leave it in recirculate while the pump is off. After circulating for a while, can you get a full set of results and post them here? I agree, if you plan to vacume to waste it seems sort of silly to put a ton of bleach in, but if you can't see, you can't see...so it is hit and miss, that's entirely up to you. If it were me, I'd get some bleach in there to begin killing the algae and start giving it some clarity so that you can see a bit better for vacuming. I've never used floc. But from what I understand, floc works better when the bulk of the thick gross stuff is already gone...it works by bonding the smaller particles together so they can be filtered/vacumed out. Like the greyish dead algae that is too small for the sand filter to catch, sort of the end stage of defeating algae blooms....I don't think it works well for the start of the process. The jellyfish thingys...perhaps somekind of bacteria/algae? Who knows, but the chlorine should rid it from your pool. Test results!
Added any chemicals other than floc? Some filter aids and non-chlorine shocks get a gelatinous quality to them when they hit the water. Otherwise I'd assume something was trying to breed. No problem leaving the MPV in recirculate with the pump off. Kill all the algae before you start trying to vacuum. If the algae are alive, they're reproducing, so you're fighting an uphill battle trying to physically remove them. And it takes the same chlorine level to kill a little algae as it does to kill a lot, so you're not going to save yourself much work. Go ahead and get to killin', and get the filter back on 'filter' asap.
A sand filter uses a multi-port valve to operate the filter which removes dirt, algae and visible c
