Swimming Pool Algae

Postby Jackson1 » Mon 24 Mar, 2014 15:33

I always thought that algae in water a good sign for a healthy water flora is. Living things, like algae, like to live in healthy places, with no harsh chemicals around, like chlorine. I wonder why a little algae bothers us so much. People are weird.


Hey, does anyone know about the service that this company - Ameraguard provides? (Spray-on coating?) I want to get it for my truck bed and boat, but would like to hear any and all experiences with it. Thanks!

It's a nice read. As far as I know algae develops when everything is not balanced. It might be that the water quality is not in good condition so you better check your filter. Exposure to the sun/light can be a cause to water algae too, if you can't cover the pool then you really need to clean it manually and regularly.

Algae is a living aquatic creature that multiplies rapidly on warm sunny days. It enters the pool by wind, rain or even by contaminated swim suits or equipment. Algae can cloud and color the water and may also have an E-coli bacteria. Proper swimming pool cleaning and maintenance done on a weekly basis will be helpful.

E-coli has nothing to do with algae and it cannot reproduce in the pool. E-coli is found exclusively in the intestinal tract of mammals and can only be found in water that has been contaminated by fecal waste or poor personal hygiene.

It has been my experience that to get rid of algea you must add algicide and shock the pool.
