WHY DOES ALGAE GET IN THE POOL?
Algae are autotrophic plant microorganisms which are introduced into the pool water by wind, rain or other swimmers.
Algae are formed from mineral salts, such as phosphates, carbon dioxide and light, which through photosynthesis are synthesized into carbohydrates (organic matter) and oxygen is released into the atmosphere.
The conditions for algae to reproduce are: very hot water, unbalanced pH levels, few hours of filtration...
Algae will settle in the pool when free chlorine is not enough, so avoiding algae in the pool is only a matter of good maintenance.
The algae destroyer CTX-575, is the perfect product to eliminate all types of algae: green, black, brown, yellow and red.
TYPES OF ALGAE IN SWIMMING POOLS
- Green algae: These are the most common, fast growing algae, they can invade a pool in 24 hours and consume a large amount of chlorine.
- Brown, yellow and red algae: Usually appear on the shady side of pools and are quite resistant to chlorine, they can resist 3 to 5 ppm of free chlorine. They have a tendency to stick to the walls and in areas of difficult access.
- Black algae: They are the most feared algae. They form dark spots and have a structure of layers where the first layer protects the layers below. This makes it very difficult to remove. They are extremely resistant to chlorine.
HOW TO REMOVE ALGAE IN THE POOL?
