Types of Algae
There are three major categories of algae that cause problems in swimming pools.
Green algae is the most common form of algae in a swimming pool. This usually starts as small spots on the surface or a gradual tinting of the water until the entire pool is green.
Yellow or Mustard Algae
Yellow or Mustard Algae is called such because of its obvious color difference from other algaes. This algae takes longer to set but is often much harder than green algae to get rid of. As it forms on the side of the pool it might be impossible to scrub off until treatment begins to weaken the algae's hold. It will lower your chlorine level and help green algae to take over as well.
Black Algae usually starts forming as little black, brown, or yellow spots, usually all grouped in the same area. These spots will spread and grow. Be careful with your brush when treating this kind of algae is you can spread it all over your pool with your brush. Soak your brush in chlroine after scrubbing.
Green Swimming Pools
When a swimming pool gets too much algae the water and walls become more and more green. Sometimes black or yellow algae forms as well these can teake more time. As soon as you see algae scrub and treat it immediately! Recovery can cost a lot and we will do our best to make it as affordable as possible!
