Algae and Their Prevention

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

The best way to treat an algae bloom is to prevent it from happening.  You always need to maintain a required level of sanitizer.  If you do have algae, treat it as follows.

1.  Shock.  Over night the sanitizer will breakdown the growth and the conditions algae thrive in.

2. Brush.  The following morning, brush the walls and the bottom of the pool with a stiff bristle brush.

3.  Vac.  Vacuum the entire pool.  While the sanitizer destroys the algae, vacuuming removes it from the pool.

4.  Test.  Bring a water sample to the Windsor Pool Shop.  Our staff will test it and advise on any adjustments needed.  Proper chemistry insures that the water is not suitable for algae growth.

Stay ahead of algae blooms.  Have your water tested at The Windsor Pool Shop and get the right advice on how to stay ahead of algae, and enjoy your pool all sumer long.
