When your pool water turns green, it’s a sign of algae growth. This isn’t just unsightly; while algae itself is rarely toxic, it can harbor harmful microbes like e-coli. Algae can also clog up pool filters or eat into pool surfaces and stain them.
Most algae problems in pools are caused by a chemical imbalance. Insufficient chlorine is the usual culprit. If you don’t regularly add chlorine to your pool water or use the wrong amount of chlorine, the balance may be off. Heavy pool use could require more than the usual amount of chlorine. Incorrect pH can also make it so the chlorine doesn’t work correctly.
If it’s caught in time, we may be able to get rid of the algae by cleaning and chemical treatment, but if you can’t see at least 6-8 inches into the pool it will need to be drained and acid-washed. Either way, you can trust us restore your pool to a beautiful blue, clean and safe condition.
Once your pool is restored, our regular maintenance service will make sure you never have a green pool problem again.
