What is the green stuff in your pool water?
Here are more answers from other FAQ Farmers:
- Like the posters above you could have Algae, generally indicated by a green growth on walls and cracks and crannys of the pool along with the water being green. Copper from perhaps a heater's heat exchanger or perhaps you used a copper based algae remover. So then what can happen is the Copper can come out of solution and show up as green water. Next do you have well water or water with a high content of iron? That will show up very green, especially when you have just put in a large amount of water to bring the pool up to the correct level. And again you will need a product to tie it up and remove and put it back into solution. Best solution to get all this back into solution or get rid of it, Please go to a swimming pool professional licensed and insured with a sample of water, they will be able to give you the professional product for your swimming pool.
- 99% of the time a green pool will be from an infestation of algae. The first thing you should do is shock the pool with a strong chlorine, that will kill the algae. You then need to run the pool constantly until it has cleared it up. Chlorine will kill the algae, and the filter will remove the cloudiness that is sometimes left behind.
A filter. Or you could take the leaves and stuff out. It might just be the reflection from the trees. If you think its really bad, you should drain the pool, wash the inside, then fill it with clean water. I say add algecide after scrubbing sides and bottom of pool while pump running after that get all levels of pool to normal if still green repeat algecide 48 hours later and vacuum.
Your pool water may have turned green even after adding Fresh and Clear because of metals in your water. It is likely copper that is causing the water green. Your pool store will have products available to remove the metals and clear your water up. You might also have algae if you are not putting enough chlorine in the pool.
the pool turned your hair green because when you get out the pool you didn't wash your hair right after you got out.... Also your hair is like a sponge before you get in the pool you should put your hair under normal water then get in the pool...because you would rather your hair soke up the normal water than the chlorine water
Yes, however not at all effectively as you would require a large amount of household strength bleach to have the same effect as the stuff you would get from a pool supplies shop. Once the water has gone green it requires a "shock dose" of chlorine or similar to kill off the growth, usually 10-15L (~2.5-4gal) of swimming pool strength chlorine is sufficient to "shock" a household pool (~<100,000L). It would be more effective to…
If your pool water turns green after it is shocked with chlorine, it is too basic. Algae can thrive there now and it is green. Add pool acid (it may require several gallons) and check the pH of the water frequently, adding more, if needed. If it gets too acidic, you can add some baking soda (which is basic) until you reach the desired pH - slightly below neutral. Neutral is pH7.0 answer : if…
Algaecide in the water your pool shop will give you the right stuff I like copper based algaecide, and scrub the walls of the pool with a stiff pool wall scrubber on a long handle. you will find that a lot of the stuff will die and end up on the bottom after a day or so, Hand vac back wash and scrub the sides again. If that doesn't start to improve things you may…

go to troublefreepool.com, and start reading "pool school" they are the real deal, and believe me there is a wealth of misinformation on the net about pools. my pool is sparkling beautiful after learning everything troublefreepool has taught me. DO NOT RELY ON ADVICE FROM THE POOL STORES - they will steer you wrong and overcharge you for stuff you don't need, and stuff that could actually make your problems worse.
