Have you noticed that your pool water doesn’t have its normal blue color? Sometimes, the water in your swimming pool can turn green, and there are many reasons why this can happen. Today, we’re going to review various reasons why your pool water could have a green color.
In many situations, a swimming pool could turn green because there is an insufficient amount of chlorine. Your water needs to get tested either one or two times every week to make sure your chlorine levels are optimal.
Along with this, it’s important to shock your swimming pool with granular chlorine. This should be done typically once every other week, maybe more frequently during summer.
You might experience green pool water if your pool’s filtration system doesn’t perform very well, or if it’s not used often enough. This is because there might be leftover debris in the water, and this makes sunlight refract through your pool’s water, which is what gives the water its green color.
pH Levels are Too High
Sometimes, the water in your swimming pool can turn green because the pH level of your water is too high. As the pH level of your water goes up, the less effective any chlorine in your swimming pool is. That’s why you need to monitor your pool’s pH levels regularly to make sure they’re optimal.
