How Do I Fix My Green Pool?


  1. Empty the leaf basket in the skimmer, as well as the lint pot in the pump. 

  2. If you have a media filter, clean it by either backwashing & rinsing. If you have a cartridge filter, take your cartridge element out and then hose and degrease the cartridge. 

  3. Test your water’s chemical balance and adjust the alkalinity to approximately 120ppm. Adjust the pH factor to approximately 7.6. 

  4. Shock dose the pool with chlorine and Algiguard.

  5.  Run the filter until the water runs clear. 

  6. Vacuum the silt that is now on the bottom of the pool.

  7.  Maintain the free available chlorine at 3ppm.
