Green pool water is caused by algae. To remove the algae, bring the pH level of the water to 7.8, scrub the sides and bottom of the pool, shock the water with chlorine, then vacuum up all the dead algae.

No, pool algae will not effect the lawn.

Lots of chlorine, brushing and long filter run times.

Having a swimming pool at home can be an amazing addition and a great source of fun during the summer. It is important that you keep the pool well maintained. To remove heavy algae from the pool it is a multiple step process that begins with scrubbing the sides of the pool. After scrubbing the walls, it is important to check the PH level of the water. Shock the pool then scrub again. Check the filter, balance the chemicals, and get back to enjoying the pool.

There are many different products designed to remove black algae from your pool. A good strong dose of pool chlorine will relieve the problem most of the time. Chlorine will naturally dissipate into the air and is removed from the pool by sunlight. You will need to stay out of the pool for a day or to until the chlorine settles back to an acceptable level. Other methods that work well are to lower the water level a few inches to give you better access to the algae and spray it with chlorine bleach. This will kill the algae and also take the color out of it. You may need to use a soft brush to remove it from the pool wall and re-spray to get rid of any algae left after brushing.

I am not sure why this has not been answered. The most common reason for the green is algae growth. If you put on a solar cover and ignore pool maintenance, then the algae will grow as the water heats and when you remove the cover, the pool will be green

brush the pool down, shock it, and run the pump and filter 24/7

Shock the pool with chlorine (your Pool shop will tell you how much to add). Run the filter constantly, cleaning as necessary, for a couple of days. Brush pool walls as well. Then install a salt water system and you won't get that algae coming back.

Try bleech it works for evrything and if that doesnt work paint over it

I am not sure this will remove the algae, but after trying several products to keep the algae from accumulating in my outside fountains, I put shock that is used to clean the pool. It really kept the water clean and free of algae. Of course, you would take precautions if you have pets to insure they do not drink from them. You could try this on your concrete.

well when you leave your pool covered for the winter, you are unable to put chlorine into it. Chlorine prevents algae so to answer your question, the lack of chlorine causes algae

To treat black algae you will need to add an algaecide to your pool water. These are specifically designed to kill and prevent algae.

I have used a product called Algone. You can find it at some pet stores here in W. PA or find it online. Its a safe effective way to remove algae from all kinds of aquariums and ponds.

Probably not. Since "Black algae" has a crusty layer over it you will need to use something abrasive to break open the spores. Get a product that says "for black algae" We usually increase the chlorine levels too (if no one is using the pool)

Best way is to vacuum it with a brush and attach the vac hose to the filter.

If the dead algae is just sitting on the top, you could either hand pick them out yourself, or use a strainer, or use a pool skimmer.

Algae can be skimmed from the top of the water using a pool skimmer. It can be removed from the sides of the pool using a brush. To prevent algae from growing in the future, a chemical "shock" will be necessary.
