Algae is a big problem for pool owners in the summertime. All of that sunshine and heat provide the perfect situation for algae to grow quickly in your pool. Algae seems to be the bane of every pool owners existence, but it doesn’t have to be. At Sparkle Pools we are dedicated to giving you the kind of swimming pool that you can enjoy, which is why our swimming pool maintenance pros in Tennessee have come up with this list of tips for keeping algae out of your pool:
Keep the sanitizer levels up- If you have a chlorine pool, keep it at the optimal level all the time. If you have a salt water pool, you need to shock your pool on a weekly basis. By doing this, you will help to prevent algae from growing in the first place.
Go swimming- The more you use your pool, the more the debris in your pool will be stirred up and easy to skim. This allows your pool to be filtered a lot more effectively.
Pay attention to your filter- If your cartridge gets too clogged, it will slow down the water movement, which will prevent proper chlorine production and filtration.
Regularly add algaecide- While algaecides aren’t a perfect solution and they aren’t always necessary, they can improve your chances for having an algae-free pool all summer long.
No pool owner wants to have to live with algae in their pool, and now that it is summer, we need to be especially vigilant about prevention. If you are sick of putting so much time in your pool, contact us today to talk to us about our pool cleaning services in Knoxville.
