Answers


Why is my pool green?


Lack of chlorine and/or lack of circulation.
The correct amount of chlorine stabiliser(cyanuric acid) must be used The filtration must be running for at least four hours per day during winter and eight hours per day in summer.
Blackspot often grows in areas of poor circulation such as corners, steps and beach entrances
Causes of low chlorine
* Chlorine Pools - must have the correct amount of chlorine added each evening
* Saltwater pools - Insufficient salt will cause low chlorine
* If the chlorinator cell needs cleaning, chlorine will be low
* Insufficient running hours will cause low chlorine
* Breakdown of chlorinator - no chlorine
* Blackspot algae will burn up chlorine very quickly

SOLUTION - ask for our famous SWAMP PAKTM for the quickest and easiest way to fix your green pool.

I think my pool is leaking, what could it be?


Natural evaporation is between 2-5 cm per week, depending on how hot and windy it is. If the loss is greater than this you need to call Poolside Frankston.

What causes Blackspot Algae, how do I get rid of it?


When algae is not treated, and becomes established over weeks or months a root system establishes itself into the pool surface, and like any plant when the conditions are ideal (warm water and low chlorine) it grows and becomes visible. It can be seen either as small black spots or creeping between the tiles or pebble.

SOLUTION - In its early stages there is a chemical which will clear it up, but in later stages the pool must be emptied, guernied and chemically treated to successfully remove the blackspot.

Why can't I get rid of Blackspot for good? Why does it keep coming back?


If you have persistent blackspot algae, where it either comes back straight away, or never really clears, your pool water is probably loaded with Phosphates, or your pool needs more regular attention.
SOLUTION - There is a non toxic chemicals which eliminates phosphates, take a water sample into Poolside Frankston for analysis.
