A pool turning green is very distressing especially when you have been cleaning it regularly. You should know that this is not your fault. A pool turning green is not due to being dirty. The main reason for this color change is due to a high concentration of chlorine. Below, I have prepared a detailed explanation of this and more reasons your pool is green.
Why My Pool Is Green
- High chlorine concentration. When the PH level of the chlorine in a pool is high, it raises the level of reactivity in the pool. Metal residues in the pool react with highly concentrated chlorine resulting in a change in the pool color.
- Algae. I understand that chlorine should be able to fight algae. There are, however, algae, that are notorious to the point that chlorine has no effect.
How To Fix A Green Pool
Wondering how you can get your pool from green to blue? The fastest way is by reducing the level of chlorine concentration by reducing the PH levels to 7 or below. This will reduce the level of reactivity in the pool water. An easy way to phrase it is not to add excessive chlorine to your pool.
