So your looking for some information about swimming pool algae. Well your reading the right article. Let me explain what sort of problems that green pool algae can cause and how to get rid cof it! I'll even tell you how to stop it from coming back.

Lets get started...

Every pool owner has had the dreaded algae problem at one time or another. It's really hard to do battle with algae if you don't know what your doing. Especially since algae seems to out there to get every pool in the country. Algae is relentless and is as regular as clokwork.

If your pool has little or no chlorine it will show its ugly head! That's because whether you like it or not algae is always present in your pool. It enters your swimming pool from wind, rain and even from other peoples swimsuits or equipment.

If your pool service guy has just brushed a green pool and then does yours, there is a fair chance that he is introducing even more algae to your pool. That's the last thing you need! When the conditions are right algae or a green pool can happen overnight! One day fine...then boom! A feral pool that looks like a swamp!

No one wants to swim in that!

Not only that! It take a fair amount of time and money to fix a green pool! Thats why its always better to use an algaecide in the water as a preventative before the water even goes green! Its a great way to free up your chlorine because if there is an algaecide in the water it will be one less thing your chlorine will have to do. Thus leaving your pool water cleaner for longer.

Algae itself is just a plant. It poses no threat to swimmers, but its the other things like bacteria that may be in your pool with the algae that could do you some harm. Algae is usually in the pool because of the lack of chlorine and when there is no chlorine anything and everything can play havoc in your pool like nasty disease spreading mosquitoes and other harmful bacteria like E-coli.

On closing...as long as you have a properly balanced pool you will never have green pool problem.
