Five Things to Know About Algae

Unless it’s St. Patrick’s Day, it’s no fun to see a bright green swimming pool. Check out Groupon’s intro to algae to understand why addressing it will always keep pool-cleaners busy.

1. There are tens of thousands of algae in the world, but pool-owners usually only have to worry about a few. Most obvious is the green, free-floating stuff known as chlorophyta, but there’s also yellow or algae that creates an oily film on walls. Worst is a black or blue-green algae with a protective outer layer that can dig deep into grout and plaster and give pool floats mange. A fourth common pool complaint, called pink algae, is actually a bacteria that enjoys cuddling up to PVC surfaces. In all cases, a combination of intensive scrubbing, sanitizing, and chlorination can typically treat the problem.

2. Algae isn’t bad for you—on its own. While the worst effect of an encounter with algae is likely to be a slimy swimsuit, it can be a sign that other forms of trouble are afloat. If algae appears suddenly, it’s likely that the pH level of your pool has changed from heavy use, rainwater, or your neighbor secretly borrowing a few gallons and replacing it with Crystal Pepsi. That can set the stage for invaders such as dangerous bacteria to find their way in.

3. Algae aren’t plants or animals, exactly. For a long time they were classified as plants—and they do make their own food through photosynthesis—but actually, algae don’t reproduce as plants do, and they lack key features such as stems, roots, and a sense of style. The group is hugely diverse, ranging from single-celled organisms to giant kelp that can grow a foot per day until they're nearly 200 feet long.

4. When it comes to chlorination, the magic ratio is 3:1,000,000. That’s the concentration chlorine needs to reach in water to prevent algae growth. If it gets diluted, normal conditions can be restored by “shocking” the pool with a more intense dose of chlorine until the water turns a cloudy blue or gray—the color of a dead algae army.

5. One day, algae might fly your plane. Biotech companies are currently working to create super-algaes that can synthesize certain oils—which can then be refined into diesel and jet fuel.

Do I need service in the wintertime?

With the colder months in the Las Vegas area on it's way, the question that we get quite often is “Do I really need pool service during the wintertime?”

 

Wether you do it yourself or hire a professional the answer is YES!

 

Since we don’t winterize or drain our pools here in Las Vegas , it is very important to clean your pool and it is vital that the chemicals be kept in balance all year. Main Pump and skimmer baskets need to be cleaned a minimum of twice each month to help prevent equipment damage. Debris need to be vacuumed up of the bottom of the pool to prevent DEEP STAINS appearing on your pool surface. Neglecting your pool for the winter months can cost you thousands of dollars in repairs. So the answer is most definitely YES! 

 

1) Equipment has a tendency to break more in the summer and WINTER months due to the harsh weather conditions.

If you have a pipe, for example, that busts during the winter months and you, as the  pool owner, don't catch it in time, you could be looking at a high repair bill to fix not only the pipe (not too expensive), but possibly any other equipment (pumps, motors, filters, etc.) that is directly effected by that one pipe breaking.

Alternatively, having a trained "eye" on your property will provide you not only peace of mind, but possibly bring to the your attention any leaks or problems that could cause future issues.

2) Chemical Balance

It seems people are under the misconception that pool chemical balance is NOT important during the cold months because they sometimes don't see algae in their pools. While it is true that algae has a harder time growing in water temperatures lower below 60 degrees F/ 15 degrees Chemical balance is vital to all of your pools main systems. Your water still needs to be balanced due to the effect that the chemicals have on your pool plaster, filters, and metals within your equipment. These things are DIRECTLY affected by the levels of Chlorine, pH, Total Alkalinity, Stabilizer and Calcium that are in the pool.

3) Pool Surface Stains

Regardless of whether you are using the pool or not, your pool still needs to look good. The last thing you want is to have deep stains in your pool surface that mights require draining and acid washing. During different times of the year the chemical needs of your pool change. During cooler months the pH of the water tends to increase which will cause several problems including staining. Most staining happens in the wintertime and sometimes can require the pool to be drained and acid washed to remove them.

 

 

 

Therefore you should not neglect vacuuming, skimming, brushing, emptying baskets and keeping an eye on your equipment to avoid problems so you can have an enjoyable year round pool experience and avoid costly repairs. 

 

A lot of pool owners have had that moment in the spring when they look into their backyard for the first time since last November and wondered where their pool went to and how did that pond get into their yard. Don't let this happen to you.
