Preventing Algae In An Above Ground Pool

Preventing Algae In An Above Ground Pool

Algae Prevention

Nothing creates a better impression than having a pool with water that is crystal clear and with a sparkle on the surface.  If algae get into the pool or if there are tiny suspended particles in the water, it can spoil the appearance and in extreme cases even stop you from using the pool.  The best way to prevent this happening is to use one of the POOLIFE Pool Care Systems and follow the   4-Step POOLIFE Program. 

Q.  What are algae?
A.  Algae are microscopic-plants that grow in water.  They are usually green, but you can find blue-green, black, yellow or
     mustard.  They can grow on the pool surface or float in the water. Algae can turn pool water green, and if you are unlucky
     this can literally happen overnight.

Q.  Won’t chlorine kill algae?
A.  Yes usually.  But there are occasions when chlorine levels are allowed to drop too low or the chlorine is not acting
     effectively because the water is out of balance, or the pool water has very high levels of stabilizer (cyanuric acid)

Q.  What can I do to prevent algae?
A.  Always ensure there is adequate chlorine in the pool at all times. Follow the POOLIFE 4-Step Pool Care Program and add
     a preventive dose of algaecide once a week.

Q.  What can I do once the algae have taken hold?
A.  If this happens, you should shock treat and then add a POOLIFE algaecide.  To treat common algae like green and yellow,
     use POOLIFE Algae Bomb 30 or POOLIFE Super Algae Bomb 60, POOLIFE AlgaeOut or POOLIFE Super AlgaeOut. 
     POOLIFE Yellow Rid®, when used in conjunction with a POOLIFE shock product, cleans up both green and yellow algae.
     Mustard and black algae are more difficult to remove, so we recommend using POOLIFE AlgaeBan or POOLIFE AlgaeKill. 
     Always follow product label directions carefully.
