The last thing you want is an algae pool. Your pool is here to allow you to experience relaxation, fun and good times with those you love. Having to worry about algae was not in the plan. In this article, we are going to talk about how to avoid an algae pool at your Tampa home.
Algae Pool – How to Fight It
While it may be a nice fit for St. Patrick’s day, we do not want a green pool. At least, we do not want a green pool because of algae. Algae can be a pain to get rid of but if you remember to perform proper maintenance, you should not have a problem.
When living in Florida, algae is a major thing you have to fight against due to the environment. This is why you make sure to clean the pool screen and supports. If you don’t do this, you are welcoming algae to your pool. Once you do clean the pool screen and supports, you will need to make sure the chemicals are balanced again. If you do not do this because you forget, you will find yourself in a very green situation.
What to Do With an Algae Pool
Let’s say you do forget and you end up with an algae pool. Is there anything you can do about it? Sure there is. While it may look like a disaster and you could be pretty upset with what happened, be ready to drop some heavy doses of chlorine and some algaecide so you can correct this issue. You will probably have to brush the pool a few times, run the circulation pump for a few days and clean the filter multiple times. It may take a few days but the pool will return to its former glory.
The best thing you can do for your pool is to never forget to clean it or put the proper chemical mix into the pool. If you are not a pool owner that understand how to do the maintenance work, you may want to hire someone to do it for you. When you hire someone to do the work for you, it is going to be less stress on you and take up less of your time.
Keep Your Pool a Dream Pool
Having your dream pool is one thing but keeping it your dream pool is another. Making sure to keep up maintenance will enable you to enjoy your time in the pool without worrying about it turning green or someone getting an ear infection from a dirty pool.
Another way to make your pool more fun is to add additional features. If you don’t have a waterslide or if you want a tanning ledge, this could be a great way to make your pool even more appealing. Imagine laying out in the sun on your new tanning ledge. It can be a reality. No matter what you need, feel free to contact us so we can help you realize your pool goals and dreams.
