Our Liquid Algaecides are patented formulas that not only work as preventatives but as a pool clarifiers that inhibit algae growth of all types. When included as part of your regular pool maintenance program, Liquid Algaecide acts as a form of insurance against the presence of algae and it’s cost associated remedies. Liquid Algaecides keep your pool water clear and your wallets full.
If your water has been struck by Algae, we have developed an efficient solution that will take only 4 days to fix! Please see below for an in-depth description of what you need to do.
First, remove the automatic pool cleaner from your pool water. After doing this, you’ll need to remove any stuck-on algae and increase the surface area of the algae you are trying to kill by brushing the walls and bottom of your pool. You’ll also need to adjust your pH to 7.2. This is an important step because algae thrives in high pH environments therefore, neutralizing your pH is vital to successfully treating your algae problem.
In the evening, you will need to super-chlorinate your pool with either HTH Extra or Unstabilized Liquid Chlorine.
If your pool water is no longer green, this next step is for you. If your pool water is still green, wait 24 hours and then redo the steps from Day 1.
In the morning, add Oxidizer to your pool water. In the evening, add your liquid algaecide; we recommend concentrated 40% Algaecide.
Your pool water should have turned from green to a cloudy blue/grey colour. This is a good thing! The change in your pool water colour means that you have successfully eliminated the algae and can now clean it out of your pool. If your water is still green, wait another 24 hours and redo the steps from Days 1 and 2.
Now is the time to add Pool Clarifier and let it circulate for 12 hours. This will clump the algae together into vaccumable pieces. Shut your pump off and let the cloudiness settle. This may take up to a few days for very cloudy pools.
All the algae should be dead and sitting at the bottom of your pool at this point. The dead algae is likely too fine to be vacuumed through your sand filter, therefore owners of sand filters must vacuum on the waste setting. Cartridge filter owners can vacuum up the dead algae but need to clean the filters thoroughly after doing so.
In the evening, chlorinate your pool with HTH Extra followed by adding a Phosphate Eliminating product to your skimmer to prevent algae from returning.
Here are some of the products mentioned in the guide above. Use them to help you in your fight against algae.
