Swimming Pool Algaecide

Swimming Pool Algaecide.

Algae is a pool chemical that can kill algae or prevent it from growing in your pool. There are different types of pool algae that can affect your pool water. Each of these comes with a range of issues and coverages may vary. Black Algae: This type of algae is commonly found in pool water because someone does not wash their swimsuit after swimming. Green algae in a lake, pond, ocean or river before entering your pool: This type of algae is the most common and sometimes why you notice green pool water. This algaecide is due to lack of proper sanitation and filtration, which can cause high pH.

Different Types of Algae

Green algae
Black algae
Yellow algae

The most common chemical used in swimming pools is algaecide.


Preventing pool algae is best with balanced water, with the right pH, alkalinity, calcium hardness, and stabilizer range. Constant and constant chlorine levels of 1-3 ppm, 10+ ppm next to daily super chlorination. A strong filter; Run the pump for 12 hours per day, more or less depending on performance. a smooth pool; Brush, skim, and vacuum to throw out natural particles that contribute to algae problems. Monitor the phosphate range within the pool. Use a phosphate remover when the range exceeds three hundred ppb. If you’ve done all of this, and you still have algae – start an algae remedy with a weekly dose of our Pool Algicide, Algicide 50, or Algicide 60 Plus to help your chlorine fight pool algae. Algae killers accomplish this by breaking down the organisms’ outer protective layers, allowing chlorine to enter the cells. These chemicals disrupt the mobile processes common to all algae, although studies have not precisely defined how they accomplish this.

It may be that they disrupt electricity shipping or algal cellular division, or perhaps they inhibit the synthesis of late cellular proteins, which may be important for cellular survival.
