How to Avoid and Treat a Green Pool?

A green pool is not only unsightly, it is an unhealthy environment for bathing. A green pool is caused by algae and is a very common problem that must be treated immediately.

It is good practice to have a proactive maintenance program that keeps the algae at bay and provides an algae-free environment all-year around.

Algae problems can be caused by contaminants brought into the water by rain, wind, cleaning equipment and even on the bathers themselves.

Factors such as high temperatures, unbalanced water and the presence of phosphates and nitrates in the water can cause algae to bloom swiftly and get out of control. 

There are a few common types of algae found in pools such as green algae, blue-green algae, black algae, mustard algae and black spot algae; all of which can be treated with the quality products at Clark Rubber.

If you get an algae bloom that is left untreated, you might be faced with a high cost for the pool chemicals needed to treat the green pool.
