You may have heard before that the formation of algae is a common problem in swimming pools. But what makes these mysterious plant-like organisms so threatening to pool owners?

It’s natural for algae to enter swimming pools that are not kept at the right chemical levels – and this is the case for many Fort Worth pools. When algae enters your pool and performs photosynthesis, it produces substances that attract certain types of bacteria and microorganisms, which may be harmful to your health. Once an algae population has established itself in your pool, it grows at a rapid pace. It takes only a few hours on a hot summer day for a small algae community to manifest itself into a pool owner’s worst nightmare. As time goes on, your algae problem will only worsen.

Beyond negative health effects, the formation of algae in your pool is not a pretty sight. Algae becomes highly visible along the walls of a pool, staining them ugly shades of green, yellow and black. And if an algae issue is not taken care of right away, it can cause pool water to turn a disgusting green color. Fortunately, Poolman’s stellar Fort Worth pool services will eliminate any algae issues you might experience and prevent algae from growing in the future.
