What Is a Green Pool?

The term “green pool” refers to pools with water that are affected by algae. Pool water experiencing an algae bloom becomes increasingly cloudy over time. With enough algae present, the pool takes on a greenish tint, hence the name.

Not only is it visually unappealing, but an unclean pool can:

  • Stain the surfaces of your swimming pool
  • Attract unwanted wildlife and insects
  • Break down pool filters and pumps
  • Cause health issues, including illness and infection due to viruses and bacteria

Algae growth occurs in chemically imbalanced water. Commonly, the imbalance is due to one or more factors, including

  • Lack of chlorine
  • Rain
  • Exposure to airborne microorganisms
  • Use of oils or lotions on the body before swimming

Algae grow either (1) suspended in the water, or (2) along the walls and floor of the pool—and in some cases, both. Regardless of where and how quickly it grows, the only way to stop algae effectively is by having your pool properly cleaned.

How to Clean a Green Pool

Green pools can be a real problem. Once a pool has begun to turn green, it’s common for owners to spend heaps on expensive chemicals, blindly throw them in the water, and hope for the best. Although we can’t prevent folks from doing it, we highly discourage this method for one simple reason: It doesn’t work!

Pools and their PH levels (chemical balance) are finicky. The range of different causes for algae growth, along with the different kinds of algae involved, means that most green pools require specialized treatments. Simply tossing chlorine at the issue only makes your pool more difficult to enjoy.

Instead, consider the services of Perth’s 1 Pool Care. Our pool maintenance and treatment services are suited to your needs and can include the following:
