pooldad07 wrote:couple final questions that may help other people too. Just let me know if any of these can cause or lead to algae in my or any pool.
thermal pool cover.
pool being in wooded area
ph being low (I had heard low ph lowers chlorine effectiveness)
temp of pool. (our thermal cover keeps our pool warm)
thanks for all your help....my pool held 25 all day. I am adding 3 gallons chlorine tonight just to give it one last little shock....
None of those will cause algae, but a nice warm, shaded, covered pool with no chlorine will become an algae farm fast!!
Keeping your pool well chlorinated is your best algae preventative.
