Is it slimy? Pink Slime is a bacteria that can be caused by rain, soil, or contaminated swim suits. It is more typically found in the circulation piping. What do you use to sanitize your pool?

In swimming pools, pink slime is caused by improper water & pool maintenance, environment, poor circulation to name a few. The problem is actually bacterial in nature. The best algaecides to use for this problem are either Polymer Algaecides or Silver Algaecides. These products exhibit some antibacterial properties: other algaecide such as "quats" or copper are not effective against these bacterial problems. Another effective treatment is the use of a Sodium Bromide product. However, the use of sodium bromide, in a chlorine pool, can increase chlorine usage, for an indeterminate length of time.
