Using Green Algae Eliminator
No green pools
Being one step ahead of algae is crucial because as algae grow, chlorine must work harder to keep your pool clean. But don't worry. You have solutions that will keep your water blue and clear from those uninvited green guests (that have no problem overstaying their welcome in your beautiful pool.) Consider using a preventative algaecide weekly if your pool is prone to algae or when the temperature increases during the peak of summer.
To use for prevention:
Add 1.5 fluid ounces per every 10,000 gallons weekly while operating filter and pump.
Add an extra 1.5 fluid ounce per 10,000 gallons after heavy rain, frequent backwashing, or partial drain/refill.
To kill green algae:
Add algaecide in areas of heaviest algae growth
Operate filter and pump for 24 hours.
After 24 hours, brush surfaces and vacuum out dead, settled algae.

Brushing: Brush pool surfaces weekly to remove any algae that may cling to them. Always brush areas in your pool that may have little to no circulation, such as corners or stairs. Use a nylon bristled algae brush for vinyl or fiberglass pools, and use a metal brush for concrete and plaster pools.
Circulation: Keeping your water in motion helps prevent algae and bacteria from clinging to surfaces. It also disperses chemicals throughout the pool for maximum coverage. It is best to circulate pool water during the daytime for at least 8-12 hours. Always circulate water when applying chemicals. Pointing the jets down towards the bottom of the pool at all times helps maximize circulation.
Chlorine will control green algae growth in most situations.
If you maintain free chlorine levels between 1 to 4 ppm by using a sanitizer, like weekly-use chlorine tablets, and shock weekly to remove contaminants that increase chlorine demand, you will decrease your chances of algae growing in your pool.
While sanitizing and shocking water with Clorox Pool&Spa products can help keep algae at bay, this may not be enough to keep your pool free of visible algae, as some types of algae are chlorine-resistant.
Always be a step ahead of algae before it has a chance to grow by adding a preventative algaecide weekly. This step is especially crucial if your pool is prone to algae or when the temperature increases during the peak of summer.
