Swimming Pool Algae Removal
There are 3 main types of pool algae that are common to pools in Henderson:
- Green Algae
- Mustard Algae (or Yellow Algae)
- Black Algae
Green Algae Removal
If your pool water has a green tint to it or there is some green growth on the walls, you have one of the most common forms of algae. Green Algae can usually be treated with a strong dose of chlorine (shock) and some algaecide. It is important to kill it all and clean any algae remnants out of your filters as well. Otherwise, it can quickly return and turn your pool green again.
Mustard Algae Removal
If you have yellow algae (also called mustard algae), this is tougher and requires thoroughly removing the algae from the pool walls using an algae brush. It can be difficult to completely eliminate because this particular variety is resistant to normal chlorine levels and must be dealt with intensely.
Most likely you’ll need to shock your pool and add algaecide as well. We highly recommend going with a professional pool service to remove algae of this kind.
Black Algae Removal
Black algae is probably the most aggravating strain of algae. It can be easily identified by its dark black color, but some occurrences may show up as blue or green spots. Unfortunately, you may not be able to remove it all using standard pool chemicals.
Its roots extend into the plaster or tile grout, and you must thoroughly brush with an algae brush to break open the heads so they can be killed with an algaecide. Even if you have proper filtration and chemical balance, black strains can still bloom. Because of how difficult it is to get rid of, its best to mitigate this from happening by investing in pool maintenance from a reputable company before it ever happens.
