HELP! My Pool Is Green
There is always a possibility that at some point through the summer season your pool will turn a nasty shade of green. This usually occurs if the chlorine level has fallen for a few days. Do not panic you should be able to bring the water back and within a few days have a clear, clean and sparkling pool again.
There are two ways to kill the algae which are causing your pool to be green. You can either shock treat with Stuff 4 Pools Shock Chlorine Granules or Stuff 4 Pools Liquid Shock. Both products have the dose rate on the packaging to ensure you use the correct amount for your size pool.
After 48hrs check the pH level as this may need to be corrected.
To keep algae at bay you need to ensure your pH and chlorine levels are maintained at the correct levels. When they are at the correct levels you can add an algaecide to help prevent algae from forming. We recommend Alicide©, a granule which needs to be diluted in warm water and poured into the pool. Alicide© is a copper based product which prevents algae from growing in the water. It also kills black algae as well as the traditional green.
