Say Goodbye to Algae: A Step-by-Step Guide to Keeping Your Pool Sparkling Clean

Let's face it, nobody wants to swim in a pool full of slimy, green algae. It's like swimming in a giant bowl of guacamole - except definitely not as appetizing. So, let's nip this algae problem in the bud before it even has a chance to take over.

The key here is to be proactive. Adding shock and algaecide on a regular basis will help prevent algae growth from taking hold. It's like a preemptive strike against the slimy green invaders.

But if you do happen to spot some algae in your pool, don't panic. Just follow these simple steps to get rid of it:

Step 1: Get the pH levels just right. Aim for a pH of 7.2 – 7.4. You know what they say, happy pool, happy life.

Step 2: Grab your trusty pool brush and give those walls a good scrub. Show that algae who's boss.

Step 3: Time to bring out the big guns - shock treatment. We recommend using Poolife® TurboShock® or Poolife® Rapid Shock® for maximum effect.

Step 4: Finish off with a dose of Poolife® AlgaeBomb® 30, Poolife® Super AlgaeBomb® 60, or Poolife® Algaecide 90. Don't worry, these products won't harm your pool and will definitely take care of any lingering algae.

Step 5: Sit back, relax, and let your filter do its thing. Keep an eye on things and give your pool a good brushing and vacuuming every now and then to make sure the algae is really gone.

Step 6: If the algae just won't quit, it's time to call in the big guns. Contact Simplified Pools for some expert advice. They'll help you figure out what's going on and recommend the best course of action to get rid of that pesky algae once and for all.

Oh, and one more thing - if you're still experiencing algae even though your chlorine levels are high, you might have too much stabilizer in your pool. Don't worry, it's an easy fix. Just use a Poolife® calcium hypochlorite-based shock product and give us a call for further directions. See, problem solved - no more slimy green pool for you!
