The pool experts / How to Get Rid of Algae From Pools | THE COOL POOL by Fluidra

All experts agree: to keep a pool in perfect condition, prevention is the best solution.

There are currently various products in the market that can help prevent the appearance of algae in pools. When you choose which product you are going to use in your pool, it is very important to remember that you will be handling chemicals and, therefore, you must examine their properties and composition carefully.


One of the aspects to be taken into account when you choose an algaecide is that some of these products are foaming, that is, they generate foam and bubbles while they work. Although the foam itself is not necessarily harmful, it may prevent you from enjoying a pleasant swim and deprive you of the delightful sensation of swimming in crystalline water.

Another aspect that it is worth bearing in mind is the capacity of some products to prevent the appearance of several unwanted elements at the same time. Some only work as algaecides, so if you wish to get rid of bacteria and fungi as well as algae, you will have to use more than one product at the same time. Although great advances have been made in the development of harmless chemical compounds, the fewer you use, the better for your pool, your organism and your pocket.

Finally, it is well worth checking your chemical dispenser system. Is it easy to regulate the amounts dispensed and adjust them to your requirements? Can you calculate the exact amount of a product that your pool requires? How often must you use each product? Dispensing the right amount of each product is essential to optimising consumption, and ensuring proper, safe and efficient cleaning.

Bearing all of these questions in mind, CTX has launched a range of super concentrated products that make pool maintenance far easier. We have a line of fast-acting super concentrated algaecides called Algicontrol Power:
