Types of Algae
There are three major categories of algae that cause problems in swimming pools.
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
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.
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
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!
