What is a Green Pool and What Causes It?

A swimming pool starts to become cloudy and turns green when there is algae in the water. The more algae in your pool, the greener it will become. The algae tend to take hold and grow on the floor and walls of the pool. You will mostly see this happen in summer with changes in the weather between sun, rain and temperature spikes.

Some of the more common causes of green pools include:

  • A lack of chlorine – Chlorine kills bacteria and algae. Without the correct levels of chlorine, a pool can quickly start to grow algae and turn green. UV exposure, high temperatures, heavy rainfall, water loss and regular use are common causes for diminished chlorine levels
  • High pH – Algae thrive with a high pH environment. When the pH level of the pool is too high, it causes the chlorine to become ineffective. Weather factors, oils, sunscreens and simple use of your pool can affect your water balance and contribute to a high pH.

    This is why we advise to have your pool water tested regularly by your local pool experts.

What is a Black Pool and What Causes it?

Just like algae can grow rampantly, they can die off very quickly. Phosphate remover can rapidly kill algae, but you may notice that the pool water turns black. This is known as a black pool and is caused by a concentration of dead algae. Inadequate circulation & filtration – Algae grows where circulation is poor. A build-up of debris within skimmer baskets, dirt and oils in your pool filter and excessive leaf litter impede water circulation and sanitisation.

Regular cleaning and pool maintenance will enable your equipment to do its job best and combat algae growth. If it has gone too far, shocking your pool with specialised treatment will bring it back to it’s former glory.

As each situation differs, green pools and black pools require an individual expert assessment to best identify the root cause and structure an effective treatment plan. To prevent a potentially unsafe and costly situation, trust your local PPS technician to restore your pool’s appearance and balance the water chemistry back to a healthy ph level, safe for you to swim again.
