Algae Problem:

Algae in your pool water is the most common pool problem you will run into. It causes water to be green “green pool”, and in more extreme cases will have a green surface with swimmers exiting the pool like a swamp creature.

Foaming Problem:

Pool appears to have a bunch of foam, with white suds appearing on the surface. The majority of foaming found in pools seem to occur due to a poor algaecide. When asking how to determine an algaecide is poor. They do not simply say they foam on the package, but they are often cheaper and sold in many major marketplaces.

DIY Solution:

Go grab you some anti-foam agent from the store to eliminate the foam. In the future, purchase your algaecide at a pool dealer.

Minerals In Pool Water

Mineral Problem:

Pool water becomes a brilliant teal or a chocolate milk brown and blonde hair may become green. The root of the issue is a build-up of minerals, and a lot of them. If iron minerals build-up, it causes brown water, and copper build-up causes water to appear teal and turns hair green.

DIY Solution:

Various chemicals are available at your local pool store to treat the issue. You will start by determining the type of mineral build-up, and grab the correct treatment.

Murky Water Or Green Pool Water

Murky Or Green Pool Water Problem:

When you are unable to see the pool bottom and it becomes a mystery as to what lurks beneath… The common reason is your pH levels are out of balance, and rain will only increase the problem. Rain is very acidic in the area, and it impacts the pool’s pH levels.

DIY Solution:

You need to have the water tested to determine the pH level and adjust as needed. The pH level can be too high or too low.

PROFESSIONAL Solution:

Stains On Pool Walls Or Pool Tile

1

Green Pool Wall Or Tile Stains Problem:

If the wall of the pool has a brown stain or on the floor, and you have no idea where it came from, sounds like you may have a stain. If may be organic, or if you had a mineral build-up, this could be the cause. You can test this by putting a little pH decreaser on a sock, then rubbing it directly on the stain. If the stain is removed, you are done. If the stain remains, try the method again using a chlorine stick in the stock, instead of pH decreaser.

DIY Solution:

After testing, if the stain remains you need to consult the professionals by explaining the results of your test. However, you should take action quickly to increase the chance of removal. Hoffer stated that “It is similar to having your favorite cloths stained, the longer it goes without being treated, the harder the stain becomes to remove.”
