Don’t let algae throw a party in your pool. Keep your water crystal clear and ready for swimmers with proper algae treatments from Poolife!

Using Algaecide in Pool Maintenance

Algae can creep into the pool when the water gets out of balance or when there’s poor water circulation. The good news is that you can quickly destroy and even proactively prevent algae with pool algaecide!

Prevention

Since algaecides support regular pool sanitation practices, you should add them weekly. Pool algaecide is also recommended after each shock treatment.

Treatment

Algaecide for pools can be used to treat algae that bloom in the pool. You must balance the pH before beginning treatment with some pool algaecide products. However, Poolife is a trusted brand that does not require pH adjustments before use. When using pool algaecide, it is recommended to brush the pool sides and bottom before treatment and then vacuum the pool following treatment.

Algaecide Safety Practices

Algaecide for pools should not come into contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. It’s best to wear gloves when cleaning the algae and applying the pool algaecide. After the algaecide treatment, wash any areas that may have encountered the algaecide.

Poolife to the Rescue

Algae can add a green hue to the pool water, cause an odor, and even create a slimy feeling. So, if you notice these signs, act fast. The good news is Poolife is a trusted pool algaecide that works in just 24 hours. In fact, some products work immediately. And, since most Poolife products are non-foaming, they’re even safer to use.
