Types of Algae
Many homeowners and property managers are unaware of the different types of algae and the proper ways to resolve them. That’s why our team of professionals are trained at determining which type is diminishing your pool’s quality and we have the proper tools to treat it.
Green Algae – If there is something green growing on the walls of your pool, or the water is no longer clear but tinted a greenish hue, you have the most common form of algae. Green algae can typically be treated with a shock (chlorine) paired with algaecide. We will ensure that we kill all the algae and clean any remnants out of your pool’s filters. If that is not done properly the algae can return rapidly, causing your pool to turn green once again. That’s why we always suggest working with a team of professionals, like our crew at Conroe Pool Care, to help you fully rid your pool's system of the algae infiltration.
Mustard Algae – Yellow algae (also known as mustard algae) is known to be tougher than green algae. This is harder to remove from pool walls and requires utilizing an algae brush. Because of its difficult properties, it is chlorine resistant. It must be dealt with in a more intense chemical fashion. Like green algae, it is important to fully remove any remnants of algae in your pool or filtration system to ensure it doesn’t return.
Black Algae – This is the worst and most aggressive form of algae. It is identified by its strong, dark black color, but it can also appear blue or even green in spots. If you notice this coloration in your pool, call our professional team as soon as possible. Black algae requires an aggressive form of treatment. The roots of it extend deep into the plaster or tile grout, which requires a thorough brush to break open the heads to allow them to be killed by the proper algaecide. We highly recommend a maintenance program to ensure that your pool is properly regulated to avoid black algae growth.
