We can turn your Green Pool to a Clean pool!
When a pool turns green with algae there are many causes. When we come out to clean a green pool we also access the equipment. We attempt to help you figure out the root cause of the poor water chemistry that turned the pool green in the first place. Whether it is if it is poor filtration, bad equipment, old water, etc. Turning a green pool into a clean pool requires Orange Tree Pool’s knowledge. Our experienced pool service and pool cleaning company can turn your pool around.
First in our process we test the overall water chemistry for dissolved solids, hardness and Cyanuric Acid, this determines the route we take with the below options:
Cleaning Option 1: Chemical treating is recommended If the water chemistry is good. We would add the required amounts of shock, algaecide and phosphate removers.
Cleaning Option 2: Deep cleaning is recommend if the basic water chemistry is poor. Draining the water from the pool and starting over with fresh water. Pebbletech pools can be drained anytime, plaster pools are only be drained from October to April to prevent cracking. Once finished, the pool is filled up and the starter chemicals are added.
Included with the service: We would clean the filter if it is a Cartridge or DE style filter tank. Imagine what the pool filter looks like if the pool water is green! If the pool uses sand filtration, we inspect and stir up the sand before back washing to flush debris from the sand filter.
We usually also recommend a chlorine wash upon draining. A Chlorine was consists of our technician getting into the pool and spraying all surfaces with liquid chlorine to kill the algae.
In Arizona, pools should be drained every 3-5 years due to the hardness of our water. The older the water is, the more difficult it becomes to maintain proper water chemistry.
After treating, analyzing and cleaning the water filtration media, we check the entire system again for difficult problems that may have contributed to the green, cloudy pool water.
