Help, my pool has turned green!

Not only is a green pool an eyesore, but it’s also unsafe to swim in! When a pool turns green, it’s become a breeding ground of algae and bacteria.

How do you restore your pool to its sparkling glory?

The number one reported pool complaint is a green pool! This is caused by an algae infestation.

Algae can grow very rapidly.

To treat your pool, you will need to use an algaecide; a product especially designed to treat the algae present in your pool, and also prevent future growth.

Algae will continue to grow as long as it has a food source. It is therefore imperative that you also remove the contaminants that algae feed on (you do this by adding a shock dose of chlorine). Follow the advice below or seek professional advice from your local PoolSmartz staff members.  Ph 4942 3106.
