Green To Clean Pool Service
When the temperature rises in the summer, having your own pool comes in handy. Nothing beats diving into cool, crystal-clear, water to beat the heat and unwind. That being said, the worst feeling is when you go outside to jump in and find that your pool has turned green. When this happens, it’s important to get it dealt with as soon as possible to avoid permanent stains and further damage.
We always recommend reaching out to your preferred pool service company to ensure proper, safe chemical use.
Say Goodbye To Green & Hello To Clean!
What Causes a Green Pool?
Technically there are a few reasons why you might end up with a green pool, but most of the time it is due to algae. As we’ve mentioned before, keeping the chemicals balanced is a key part of regular pool maintenance. Failing to do so, will create the ideal environment for algae to grow and flourish. Testing your chemicals weekly will ensure that you are always on top of any imbalances that occur. If you opt to do your own maintenance, you can purchase a testing kit at your local pool supply store. If you hire a professional service for maintenance, they should be testing the chemicals during each stop.
Is It Safe To Swim in a Green Pool?
While it truly depends on how bad the green pool is, we highly recommend never swimming in a green pool until a green pool treatment has been done. As mentioned above, green pools are commonly caused by algae growth. When algae develop, bacteria and parasites will arrive soon after. If you swim with these present, the bacteria and parasites can eventually sneak into your ears, nose, eyes, mouth, and any open cuts or wounds.
Green Pool Treatment Phoenix, AZ
Treating a green pool isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ process. The treatment chosen depends on the severity of the green pool.
If it just recently started turning green, it most likely has just a light green tint to it. Pools in this condition can usually be reversed with a Shock Treatment.
The green pools that may have been ignored and given the chance to turn into more of a dark, swampy green, will likely need more intense treatment. Most of the time, pools in this condition will be drained and a chlorine or acid wash will be conducted. Occasionally, so many algae have grown that a “muck out” will be necessary to shovel them out following the drain before moving forward.
