*Revision note 2017: Viscount West is now Sunny’s Pools & More*

As algae begins to grow within your swimming pool, don’t just allow it to continue to spread, clean it up! Algae is one of the most common problems in swimming pools and isn’t healthy to have in your pool. It can grow on the walls or floor of the swimming pool but algae can be removed or avoided by following these few steps:

  1. Wipe off the floor and walls of the swimming pool on a regular basis. By doing this, it will help prevent an algae bloom or remove the
    algae from inside of your pool.algae for viscount pools west
  2. Always clean the pool filter. This ensures that all of the old algae is out and/or removed from the bottom of your pool. If the algae is trapped within the filter, this can possibly allow new algae to grow. A dirty pool is an unhealthy pool.
  3. Vacuum up the old algae from the bottom of your swimming pool. Wait until all of the new algae is completely gone before vacuuming the residue of the old algae altogether. You will be able to tell that the difference between old and new algae by the colors. Old algae tends to have a white or grayish color to it while new algae has a green hue.
  4. Make sure the pH levels for your pool are correct. The chlorine works better when the pH levels are efficient because it helps kill off algae or stops it from forming. By testing your pool’s chemical level, it helps balance your pool. Putting algaecide inside of your pool on a weekly basis also prevents algae from reappearing.
