Types of Algae That Can Affect Your Pool

Your Miami pool will require regular maintenance to keep algae growth at bay when the weather is warm. There are three common forms of algae that are found in backyard pools and they are as follows:

Green Algae
Green algae are the most common form of algae because it grows quickly. This nuisance can be found on pool walls as well as along the surface of the water in large, floating patches. Green algae should be addressed at the first site to ensure relatively easy removal.  Severe cases can be harder to remove.

Mustard Algae
Mustard algae is a form of green algae that has a brown-yellow color. Mustard algae is commonly found in pools because it’s resistant to chlorine. It feels slick and slimy and can usually be found pool stairs, ladders, and near lights.

Black Algae
Black algae grow along the cracks of your pool. The color is actually more of a blue-green shade. This tough to deal with strain of algae can be very difficult for homeowners to get under control.  Seeking the help of a professional pool service is often needed.
