Causes of a Green Pool
So, what exactly makes a pool green, anyway? The most common cause is an imbalance of chemicals. If you’ve ever noticed water in nature that appears green or mossy, it’s not because the water is dirty, but rather it’s never been treated chemically. Algae spores travel through the wind and can land in water, where they often like to breed and multiply. Typically, a chemically balanced pool would diminish the spreading of these spores, but when your chemical balance is off, the water fails to combat them adequately.
In most circumstances, mildly green pools can be cleaned by shocking, filtering, brushing, and re-balancing their chemicals, followed by adjusting the pH levels. This list of steps can be completed by a professional to rid your pool of green tints or hues. However, if your pool is beyond the shade of a light green and better resembles a darker, murkier color, then your pool may need to be drained and cleaned. A pool cleaning professional can typically determine which remedy would be best, but most professionals will be able to identify how contaminated a pool is based on its clarity. If you’re unable to see through a few inches of the green water, it’s usually too green to be chemically cleaned and will need draining.
To rid your pool of its green tint, you’ll need some patience along the way. Even when pools can be chemically altered and cleaned, this is still a long process that requires some time to test and adjust the water for long-lasting results. In doing so, you’ll need to set aside a day or two for the chemicals to fully settle and take effect, clearing the pool of any green colors, so make sure this process is done on a weekend that you’re not expecting pool guests! Once the water’s been tested, the shock’s been added, your pool pump and the filter will need to run a few cycles, finishing the cleaning process off with some brushing to remove any remaining debris. Depending on what type of filter you have may also determine how long your pool will need time to recuperate.
It’s been a few days, and your pool water is finally starting to clear up! To maintain this clear water and reduce the effects of algae spreading again. You’ll need to rinse and run cycles through your filter regularly. You’ll also need a professional to test the pH levels and maintain accurate chemical balances frequently to avoid the water turning green again in the future. Pool maintenance green cleaning will help you be as transparent as crystal your pool is.
