The Pool Life

Were you a bit lazy with pool chemistry maintenance over the winter? As the warm weather sets in, a poorly maintained pool will start to reflect bad habits by turning green. 

The main culprit of a green pool is algae. Proper pool chemistry is the only way to avoid algae build-up. 

Another contributor may be organic matter, which serves as food for algae, so it will strengthen algae build-up in your pool even if you have proper pool chemistry. Regular pool chemicals do not rid a pool of organic matter. Specific treatments are needed. 

Algae will be a constant consideration in the desert climate of Arizona. The high temperatures and sun exposure encourage it to grow in shallow areas.
