Maintaining pool water
Algae will not become a regular visitor if you ensure your pool water contains proper chemical balancing.
Ensure your water is tested for chemical adjustments twice a week. Running the pool pump at regular intervals encourages the proper circulation of water dispensing chlorine levels. Pool water contains contaminants such as sunscreen, hair products, and skin oils. Ensure cleaning the pool takes place once a week using a pool brush to remove mineral build-up. Sunken debris removal is by vacuuming the pool wall and floors, cleaning and emptying all filters.
They are chemicals used to kill algae hence preventing their growth. Algaecide is effective only if used in small doses weekly. Common types of algaecide include quats, poly quats, chlorine and bromine, copper-based algaecides, and black algaecides. Algaecide is effective when algae growth is not at its peak. A heavily algae-infested pool will require chlorine shock first to eradicate it. However, too much use of algaecide can cause staining on the floor of your swimming pool which might not be attractive.
Phosphates occur naturally in most pools from dead leaves, lawn fertilizers, etc; when they multiply they feed on algae. The results are turning the water pool cloudy and green. Removal of phosphate is by keeping organic materials off and prevent the growth of algae.
