Lawrenceville, GA (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
With a heat wave taking over most of the country and summer rain storms making their annual appearance, algae has the perfect conditions for crashing the backyard party. With a few simple pool care tips from BioGuard, pool owners can learn how to keep their swimming pools algae-free.
Algae grow in gutters, ponds, other water-holding fixtures and even soil surrounding a home. Hot and wet conditions help facilitate the growth of algae, which can then be washed into the pool. Algae spores can also enter the water via rain and wind.
BioGuard, one of the leading manufacturers of pool and spa products, recommends a system approach to pool care. Simple tips include:
- Weekly preventative algicide
- Weekly shock routine to eliminate unwanted contaminants
- Maintain a good sanitizer level (range) 1- 4 ppm
- Brush pool once a week
Following these easy steps can prevent algae infestation in a year where algae could be a threat all season. In addition, BioGuard dealers offer complimentary, computerized analysis of swimming pool water.
