During the months of July and August, algae can be a very big problem for swimming pool owners. With the higher temperatures during these months, as well as inconsistency in a pool's sanitizer levels, algae can rear its ugly head.
Algae is a single-celled plant form. It uses the process of photosynthesis to manufacture its own food. It comes in a very wide variety of colors and forms, making it adaptable to almost any condition.
Due to algae's microscopic size, it takes literally millions of these plants to accumulate to be noticed by the naked eye! By that time it may be too late and very costly to correct.The best way to eliminate algae is through prevention!
Green water in your hot tub is a sure sign that your chemical levels need some tweaking. It will look and probably smell unpleasant, and it revents you from enjoying your hot tub safely.Your spa water can be discolored due to several factors, but usually a chemical imbalance is at fault. Algae can be a cause of green hot tub water, but that is normally not the reason.
