Has your swimming pool turned green? Are you ready to go from a green pool to a clean, clear and safe pool? Algae treatment can be a bit of a hassle if you don’t know what you’re doing. Do you have green algae, yellow/mustard algae or black algae?
Knowing what type of algae you have will dictate the treatment plan, but don’t worry, we can help. The faster you act, the better off you will be, so please contact us immediately. A green pool is unattractive to look at but also causes many other problems. It’s a breeding ground for mosquitoes and bacteria that pose a serious health risk. Green pools that sit too long can also stain the plaster of your pool. If staining occurs, you must drain the pool and apply a chlorine wash to remove the stain. Due to variances in staining, there is no guarantee a chlorine wash will remove all stains.
