How often do you use an algaecide? - July 16, 2014
Have you added your weekly does of algaecide to your swimming pool this week?
There are a few good reasons to use an algaecide such as a weekly maintenance dosage and of course treating the dreaded green pool.
Weekly or Bi-Weekly Maintenance Dosage:
Regular usage of an algaecide helps prevent your swimming pool from turning green while providing a few benefits. While using an algaecide, the chlorine consumption is reduced which means swimmers may enjoy lower sanitizer levels. The algaecide also inhibits any build up in the filtration system which allows the life expectancy of the equipment to extend. A few other pluses are ease of use and handling and application, cost effective and widely available.
Dreaded Green Pool:
Using a shock and an algaecide treatment to clear a swimming pool that has turned green is never fun! Adding a combination of a chlorine shock plus an algaecide will increase the time that it will take for the pool to clear.
When having to treat a green pool, please these helpful tips!
1 Double check all of your equipment, this includes the filtration system.
2 Test pH level and adjust as needed before starting treatment. PH needs to be between 7.2-7.4.
3 Brush walls, corners, floors and around all steps, ladders and lights to help remove algae from surfaces.
4 Apply algaecide as directed on container per pool size for “Visible Algae.”
5 Superchlorinate the swimming pool as directed on container for swimming pool size. Allow the swimming pool to circulate. ( 2 lbs per every 10,000 gallons)
6 Allow the swimming pools filtration system to work for 24 to 48 hours (this includes, running the pump continuously until the water is clear). The appearance of the water should gradually improve over this time.
7 The next day, you may want to add a clarifier or flocculent to help expedite the clearing process. Clarifier’s will make the debris bigger to make it easier for your pool to remove debris and flocculents drop dead debris over night to the bottom of pool to be vacuumed ‘to waste’.
**If the pool is clear and you’ve maintained a chlorine level of 2-5 ppm, start using your normal chlorine application. If it’s clear but no chlorine is left, add a normal shock application and add normal chlorine dosage.
