GREEN FOAM ON WATER'S SURFACE

MY POOL'S WATER IS CLEAR AND BLUE, BUT THE LEFT SIDE OF THE POOL IS COVERED WITH GREEN FOAM. I JUST USED ALGACIDE, SO WHAT DO I DO TO GET RID OF THE FOAM? THANKS

You probably overdosed on the algacide. You will have to wait it out. It usually settles within a few days though.

THANKS! I WILL JUST WAIT AND SEE IF IT CLEARS UP....IF NOT, I'LL CONTACT MY LOCAL POOL PLACE AND GET SOME PROFESSIONAL HELP! I ASSUME THAT THE REASON THE FOAM IS GREEN IS BECAUSE THE ALGAE WAS "GREEN ALGAE" AND IT HAS BEEN KILLED AND HAS RISEN TO THE SURFACE. THE FILTER SHOULD TAKE CARE OF IT EVENTUALLY!

Yup! Make sure to keep free chlorine level at least 3ppm to help destroy the remaining algea and help the pool water clear quicker.
