We Can Solve Your Pool's Algae Crisis

You want your swimming pool to be a clear, clean, beautiful and safe!  Having it turn into a swamp-like green mess can be distressing.  Swimming in green pool water is unsafe, so turning it from "green to clean" and keeping it that way is critical. Swimming pools can host many different types of algae. Algae spores can enter your pool via the wind, rain, debris, or contaminated swimsuits or equipment. "Green Pool" or the growth and spread of algae happens when the algae bloom from imbalanced pH in the pool water, is exposed to nitrates and/or carbon dioxide, strong sunshine or warm temperatures, and is combined with lack of proper circulation, filtration and sanitation of the pool water. If you combine these issues and conditions, an algae bloom can occur seemingly overnight.

When these conditions are not treated it can decrease the effectiveness of your pool filter and increase the demand for chlorine, consuming chlorine that should be working on other contaminants in the water. Algae are a living aquatic creature that multiplies rapidly on warm, sunny days. Like all plants, they contain chlorophyll and utilize photosynthesis to grow. Algae itself is not harmful, but could harbor pathogens like e-coli bacteria.
