Lawrenceville, GA (PRWEB) July 08, 2014
Summer heat and rain can wreak havoc on backyard swimming pools, creating perfect conditions for algae to become an unwanted party guest. With a few simple tips, 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 nation’s premier suppliers of pool and spa products, recommends the following:
- Weekly preventative algicide
- Weekly shock routine to eliminate unwanted contaminants
- Maintain a good sanitizer level (range) 1- 4 ppm
- Brush pool once a week
These easy steps can prevent algae infestation in a year where algae could be a threat all season. In addition, pool owners can bring in a sample of pool water to their local BioGuard dealer for complimentary testing and a prescription for sparkling water.
