Pool algicides are a necessity to keep your water safe from any algae. Although we may have disinfected our pool previously, algae can appear for a range of different reasons, such as chemical waste, trees or plants around the pool, sudden changes in temperature, rain, etc. All this means that using disinfectants alone is not enough.
At CTX we offer advice on what anti-algae treatments to use for your pool, how to measure them out, and how to use them. You must be careful though, as excessive use of this product can cause the water to foam.
We also recommend using a phosphate remover, as phosphates are what algae feed on. If there is no food, then the algae cannot reproduce. For example, the CTX PhosFree is a concentrate product that instantly removes phosphates. If you do not want to use anti-phosphate products, then we recommend using anti-algae products each week. Concentrates are easier to use thanks to their dispensing bottle.
Algae can cause problems such as: green or brown water, slick water surface, or the deterioration of the pool, which is why it is important to use a really effective product to combat them.
To combat the appearance of algae in your pool, CTX offers a wide range of solutions. Each algicide has its own technical specifications to certify its characteristics and credentials, as they are all reliable and top quality products.
