Get quick answers to the most common pool problems such as algae, cloudy water or scale and staining. We'll give you an analysis of what caused the problem plus and suggest ways to fix it along with product recommendations.
Green Algae - Green algae are free-floating, can turn a pool green in a matter of hours, and can be found in all types of pools. It's the most common type of algae - it’s also the easiest to prevent or eliminate.
Black Algae - Black algae is a blue-green filamentous algae that grows as black, slippery spots on rough surfaces of concrete and plaster pools. It forms a protective coating around itself and if not checked, can grow into a dense black mat.
Mustard Algae - Mustard algae appears as orange, yellow or mustard spots on pool walls and floors. It’s a difficult algae to eliminate and can be found in all pool types.
Algae growth is usually caused by one of the following conditions:
Inadequate free available chlorine levels - Free available chlorine levels can be depleted quickly by heavy rains, high bather loads or poor maintenance procedures. During such conditions, check free available chlorine levels frequently and add an Aqua Chem chlorine sanitizer as needed, according to label instructions.
High pH - Alkaline (high pH) water prevents chlorine from effectively killing algae. Aqua Chem pH Decreaser, used as directed on the label, will lower pH to the correct level of 7.2-7.6.
Dirty Pool Surfaces - Dirt and slime accumulation on pool surfaces provides the perfect location for algae problems to start. Weekly brushing and vacuuming eliminate this source of trouble.
