You may find that, even if you use your pool all season, that the water gets green over time. Constant water care and cleaning might not even solve your problem! Green water is a notorious problem that can be attributed to algae blooms. Unfortunately, if algae is not treated properly, it can clog your filters and cause serious problems with your water quality. That’s why it is vital that you take care of an algae problem right away.
Scrub, Scrub, Scrub!
A vacuum is not enough to fully clean your pool. It picks up debris off the bottom, and nothing more. If you truly want to cleanse your pool, you need to get in with a scrub brush and scrub down the walls and floors. This removes any algae build up that is happening on the surfaces. Afterwards, run the vacuum; the algae deposits will sink to the bottom, where they can be picked up by a vacuum. This scrubbing also serves as prep for chlorine shock.
Shock the Pool
Shocking your pool with chlorine is the best way to get rid of algae. It uses harsh chemicals, so you need to look at the label on your shock treatment product. This will help you determine how much action needs to be taken related to the severity of your problem. Shocking can be done repeatedly, but should still be done with caution.
From this point forward, you should be treating your pool’s water with an algaecide to prevent further algae blooms. You also need to regularly scrub the sides of your pool, to ensure no algae has a chance to grow. Remember; half the battle is fighting the algae from showing up in the first place!
