How to Clean Green Pool

Here are 5 easy steps to clean green swimming pool water. But first, let’s find the reason for green water in the first place.

Why the water in swimming pool is green?

At the point when your pool water from a beautiful blue turned into a wiped out green, there’s just one explanation. It is algae. Algae growth when the pool’s sanitizer levels are very low. If you are not regularly checking pH, Free Chlorine, and CYA tests, nor vacuuming, nor cleaning very soon you will see the water becoming green.

Here are 3 main reasons why algae may occur:

  1. Inappropriate PH balance. A pH level that is too low can dissolve pool materials and cause eye disturbance, however excessively high and it won’t eliminate microbes or green growth and can likewise cause skin aggravation.
  2. Dirty filter. On the off chance that your filter isn’t working, you’re clearly going to experience difficulty keeping it clean. Not exclusively will green growth keep on developing, however, you could likewise be rearing microorganisms and flotsam and jetsam that will stain the water.
  3. Climate change. Algae flourishes in warm, sticky situations, so in the event that you’ve as of late encountered an adjustment in your climate, you’ll need to be extra solicitous about cleaning the pool.

Now, you know the reasons and can start taking care of the actual green swimming pool water.

Five easy steps to clean your green pool quick

  1. Clean and vacuum swimming pool.
    Clear out the greater part of the trash and debris from the pool floor with a huge leaf net (not a hand skimmer!). This will work up the water and maybe looked much worse, however, left debris will settle down in a couple of hours. Try not to vacuum the pool if you cannot see the bottom,  of it. You clog may be skimmed or you can damage underground pipes.
  2. Test your water.
    Start out by testing pH because once you start to slam the pool with chlorine your ph reading will be not accurate. Normal pH is 7.5-7.8.  Test the cyanuric acid in your pool, also known as CYA or Stabilizer. Normal for non-salt water pools: 30-60 ppm,  saltwater pools: 70-80 ppm. Adjust the pH and alkalinity levels of the water. These levels must be within the proper ranges or the water will never clear.
  3. Shock the water.
    This implies super chlorinating the water to kill off any microbes and algae. On the off chance that your pool is extremely dirty, it might require a lot of pounds of Granular Shock and about a week before the water clears. Start off by including 3 or 4 lbs, and on the off chance that you see no outcomes medium-term, include 3 or 4 additional pounds the following day. Proceed with this procedure until you notice the water changing shading to either overcast white, light green or clear. Make sure to run your filter and discharge every now and again during this time. Note…shock is accessible in fluid or granular structure, our recommendation is to use granular. It will, in general, be more grounded and works quicker than fluid. Overnight chlorine loss test:

    • Perform free chorine test in the evening after the sun has gone down and record the levels
    • Test your free chlorine again in the morning, if the reading has stayed the same or has dropped less than 1ppm, and combined chlorine is less than 0.5ppm then your pool has passed the OCLT.
    • If your free chlorine dropped more than 1ppm and combine chlorine is above 0.5ppm, you will need to continually maintain shock level and redo the OCLT the following night
  4. Run the filter.
    Make the filet run 24 hours every day and discharge 3 or 4 times each day in order to get fast results. Green or overcast water will rapidly stop up a filter, accordingly, you may need to discharge your filter all the time until the pool clears. It is totally ok. Keep in mind, you can’t over-discharge a pool filter. The more you run your pool, and the more you discharge the filter, the quicker the pool will clear up. Make sure you keep the water level in the pool up as discharging expels water from the pool. If you don’t see results in the next 4-5 days your filter may not be working appropriately. If so you need to call an expert. The pool will never clear up if the filter isn’t working appropriately.
    Once the water does clear up, you will probably see debris on the pool floor. Use the vacuum if it is only a small amount. If there is a lot of debris on the pool floor, you should have the pool professionally.  It will be more efficient and save you time and equipment.
  5. Maintain your pool.
    Here are a couple of basic things you can do to ensure your pool water remains perfectly clear:
  • Check filters often. Green growth flourishes in dormant water, so guarantee that your filter and siphon framework is freed from flotsam and jetsam and working appropriately to keep the water moving and living beings skimmed off.
  • Brush and vacuum week by week. Clean the surface and vacuum the base of the pool week after week to shield any dead algae or microbes from developing.
  • Keep up a sound PH level. It’s prescribed to test your pool’s PH levels 2-3 times each week alongside your fluid chlorine (source). The prescribed level to keep up is somewhere in the range of 7.4 and 7.6. This level should fight off any green growth spores before they have the opportunity to sprout.
  • Utilize a pool cover. Keeping out flotsam and jetsam and different life forms that may blow in will help keep the yuck to a base. It will likewise shield the sun from supercharging any green growth spores that are now waiting.
