Above Ground Pools Trouble Shooting Problem Algae

Above Ground Pools Trouble Shooting Problem Algae

The addition of shock and algaecide on a regular basis will be more effective at preventing algae growth than treating algae once it is visible in a pool.  However, if algae do appear, follow the steps below for treatment:

  1. Adjust the pH to 7.2 – 7.4.
  2. Brush the pool sides vigorously.
  3. Shock the pool with POOLIFE TurboShock or POOLIFE Rapid Shock.
  4. Add your POOLIFE AlgaeBomb 30, POOLIFE Super AlgaeBomb 60, or POOLIFE Algae Ban according
      to label directions. Your authorized POOLIFE Dealer can recommend which product is best for your pool.
  5. Run the filter 24 – 48 hours, brushing and vacuuming frequently.
  6. If algae remain a problem, contact your authorized POOLIFE Dealer for further directions.

 – If you continue to experience algae, despite a high chlorine reading, the pool water may contain too much stabilizer
[cyanuric acid] which interferes with the efficiency of the chlorine – ensure you are following responsible pool care by shock-treating
with a POOLIFE calcium hypochlorite based shock product
