Algae in the Swimming Pool: How to Get Rid of It?

 

Algae in the swimming pool is a common problem that can make swimming uncomfortable and cause your pool to look unattractive. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps you can take to get rid of algae and keep it from coming back.

The first step in getting rid of algae in the pool is to ensure that your pool is properly balanced. Algae thrives in pools that are too alkaline or too acidic. Check your pH level and use a pH balancing product to keep it within the acceptable range. You should also check the chlorine levels as too little chlorine can also make your pool more attractive to algae.

The next step is to make sure you are cleaning your pool regularly. Vacuum the pool at least once a week to remove any debris that can collect on the bottom of the pool and provide a breeding ground for algae. You should also brush the sides of the pool to remove any dirt or debris. If the algae is still present, you may need to shock the pool. Shocking the pool will kill any existing algae and help prevent future growth. Make sure you use the correct amount of shock for your pool size and type.

Finally, you can use an algaecide to help get rid of the algae. Algaecide works by killing the existing algae in the pool and preventing new growth. Make sure you read the directions on the product carefully and use it as directed.

By following these steps, you can get rid of algae in your swimming pool and enjoy a clean and healthy pool. Paying close attention to the pH levels, chlorine levels, and regularly cleaning and shocking the pool will help keep the algae away.
