Just about every pool owner has had to deal with algae problems. Algae spores enter your pool through swimmer’s bodies or suits, rain, wind, dirt, and leaves.
There are several steps that can help prevent green water from algae blooms.
Algae Prevention Steps
- Filtering and water circulation
- Keep sanitizer levels in desired range 1 – 3 ppm
- Shock the pool weekly
- Backwash sand filters, clean cartridge filters
- Keep skimmer and pump baskets clean
- Brush pool surfaces and vacuum
- Use algaecide regularly
