Best robotic cleaner for mustard algae

Postby JamieG » Wed 20 Jul, 2016 08:58

We have been struggling with mustard algae & are beginning to finally win the battle but feel we need a robotic cleaner to keep on top of the problem. We are trying to decide between the Dophin models or the Hayward models, specifically the Tiger Shark. Any opinions on which is better in general or especially with cleaning mustard algae? Thank you!!

How have you been treating it because I don't think a robotic cleaner will do the job for you
This link will tell you how to treat it
Follow the slamming and follow up procedure and try not to miss any part of your pool as it will come back

There is also another article from Swim University ... in-a-pool/ on how to remove mustard algae in pool. If you have a pool automatic vacuum cleaner, it is helpful to suck the algae out once the initial stages of cleaning is done.
