THE EFFECT OF STORMY WEATHER ON MY SWIMMING POOL, WHY DOES IT TURN MY POOL GREEN

It’s all about the nitrogen.

The flashes of lightning, apart from lighting up a night sky, create nitrogen in the atmosphere and the rain washes that nitrogen down and into your pool.

Nitrogen is a plant food, and a very good one at that. There are always traces of algae in even the best maintained pools, so the algae will thrive on the extra nitrogen that is washed down when the heavens open.

Algae are microscopic and so, when there are just a few of them, they are invisible to the human eye but feeding on the nitrogen, they bloom and multiply very quickly until there are enough to turn the pool water green and murky.

So that’s why it happens, but of course you don’t want it to happen. So, what can you do about algae?

One way of avoiding a thunderstorm turning your pool green is to test the chlorine levels in your pool and shock the pool with chlorine as soon as possible after the storm.

However, recovering an algae infested pool can be a difficult and time-consuming task so prevention is better than cure. The more algae-free your pool is at all times, the less likely you are to have problems.

>> Our range of Algaecides

>> Our range of Long-life Algaecides

https://www.cpc-chemicals.co.uk/blue-horizons-c-145/blue-horizon-longlife-algaecides

Keeping your pool water in balance is the key.

Oxidising the water regularly will get rid of organic wastes and other material that the algae can use as food.

Keeping sanitisers at a consistent level will greatly reduce the algae population as will using a specific algaecide. Algae grow very rapidly in warm water and bright sunlight so the best time to apply an algaecide is mid-morning or early afternoon.

The algae will start to grow on the sides of your pool so regular brushing is a good idea to get them off the walls and into the water where the pools filtration is more likely to remove them.

NEW PRODUCT: Kleenpool Ultimate Paddlecare Kit

We all have the spontaneity of paddling in water, both at the seaside but also in the back garden.

Freshly filled paddling pools are generally safe, but given that water is now considered a precious resource, its wasteful to constantly drain down and refill paddling pools, and there’s certainly no need to do this.

By using Ultimate Paddlecare Algaecide Protector for algae control, alongside Ultimate Paddlecare Super Fizz Tablets for bacteria destruction, users have the perfect remedy to re-use water in the knowledge that the water is “safe”. Using these products will give protection of water for at least a week or until such time that contamination is deemed excessive (i.e. too much grass/leaves etc).

In addition to the aforementioned products, each Paddlecare kit also contains 50 dip tests and a full user guide.

The kit includes the following:
3 x Ultimate Paddlecare Algae Protector 50ml Sachets
1 x Ultimate Paddlecare Super Fizz Tablets (20 x 3.2g)
50 x Ultimate Paddlecare 3 Way Test Strips
1 x Instruction Leaflet

Do you have a problem with phosphates in your pool or struggle with a green pool?

Over the winter, phosphates enter your pool in a number of ways: leaves and decaying matter, dirt, bugs, fertilisers and pesticides along with those brave winter swimmers! Some chemicals that we add to the water can be phosphorous-based and this creates an ideal breeding ground for Algae.

Phosphates in Pool Water Aren’t Harmful

Having low phosphate levels in your pool isn’t harmful to you, but high phosphates are one factor that promotes rapid algae growth.

We would suggest you test for phosphates with our Pool Check Phosphate Test Strips

Use our easy to dose Ultimate Phos Granules Sachets

  • Highly concentrated phosphate remover, in a pre-measured ‘Easy to Dose’ twin sachet
  • Use in conjunction with any algaecide to help keep water clear
