Here is the problem with algae; once it starts accumulating in your pool and sunny weather, it can easily photosynthesize and multiply. This multiplying can escalate its growth, and soon, your pool will have a lot of algae. At Sparkling Waters Pool and Spa Services, Inc., we know how to treat this problem effectively. If you overlook your pool algae for a very long period or keep putting off the process of eliminating the algae from your pool, you will have to spend a lot of time and money in the long run.
Here are some algae-related things you need to know about your pool and how timely deep cleaning of your pool is necessary. You can also say goodbye to this problem if you opt for some of the preventive measures that we have recommended below.
Most Commonly Found Algae
When it comes to algae, there is not just one type. The three most common types of algae will most commonly be found in your pools. You must figure out what kind of algae is in your pool to determine the appropriate elimination technique.
Firstly and most commonly, we have green algae. While it is widespread, green algae are also the easiest to remove. This type of algae is green as it gets its green color from chlorophyll. Once green algae find its way in your pool, it ends up giving your pool water a slightly green color and is usually found floating on the water. As a result, the water becomes cloudy. The worst problem with this type of algae is that since it is slimy, it can easily attach itself to the walls of your pool. A lack of proper cleaning, filtering, and sanitation can help boost the growth of green algae.
Other Types of Algae
Secondly, we have yellow algae. These yellow algae are usually found in the corners of pools and look a lot like pollen or sand. Yellow algae are not commonly found. Its chlorine-resistant nature makes it very tough to treat, and thus it can cause a real problem for your pool. Lastly, we have black algae. Black algae are the worst in terms of growth since they can nurture themselves and grow. Black algae are tough to remove, too, since it makes its way through the concrete in your pool, and if you don’t eliminate it with an aggressive approach, the black algae find its way back.
Once you have determined the kind of algae your pool has, the pool cleaning company you hire will tailor their pool cleaning methods according to your pool and the type of algae present. Regardless of how thoroughly and aggressively your pool is cleaned, you will have to ensure that you adopt some practices to ensure that the algae problem does not happen again.
