We specialize in taking your pool from Green to Clean as quickly as possible. The chlorine in your pool can be consumed quickly based on the exposure to sunlight, heavy use, equipment breakdown or large amounts of organic material in the water. If the chlorine is exhausted, algae will grow quickly. Our certified pool operators were able to take this pool from green to clean in 24 hours.

Black algae is the most stubborn pool algae to treat. Brushing and shocking alone will not remove it. When black algae blooms it forms a hard outer shell that protects it. When growing, the roots of the black algae will burrow deep inside of a plaster pool, especially older plaster pools that have rough spots.  It's going to take lots of work brushing with a metal algae brush multiple times a day, treating it with a black algaecide, maintaining proper water balance and slowly removing each layer of algae. Persistence, patience and proper chemical application is the key to treating black algae. If not treated early enough, it will cost you thousands to re-surface your pool.
