My pool looks kind of green, what should I do?
If your pool water is green, it likely means that there is an excess of algae in the water. To fix this issue, you should:
Shock the pool with chlorine to kill the algae.
Use a pool algaecide to prevent further growth.
Brush the sides and floor of the pool to remove any algae that may be clinging to the surfaces.
Run the filter for at least 24 hours to remove any dead algae from the water.
Test the water chemistry to ensure it is properly balanced.
Make sure the pool is getting enough sunlight and circulation.
It is also a good idea to have a professional pool service to come and assess the situation and give you a personalized solution.
