Pool Pro: 5 Steps to Remove Algae From Your Pool, Kihei, Hawaii

Swimming pools are a fun addition to any home, but occasionally, circumstances can causes the water in them to turn green, requiring vigorous cleaning. That’s because green water is usually a sign a pool has been overtaken by algae, and if the pH balance of the water isn’t ideal, more bacteria will flourish, leading to even more discoloration. The certified professionals at Pool Pro in Kihei, Hawaii, offered these steps to follow if your water is green.

  • Check your pool’s filter to make certain it is clean and working properly.
  • Test the pH level in your water. It should be low, somewhere between 7.2 and 7.5. If it’s not, treat it accordingly.
  • Scrub all surfaces of the pool to remove debris and algae. When done, try backwashing, or reversing the water flow through the filter to remove unwanted trash and bacteria.
  • Shock the algae with a chlorine treatment.
  • Repeat the above steps as needed until the water is clear and clean.
