Transforming Your Pool: From Green to Clean with Just Chemicals and Elbow Grease

Say Goodbye to Green, Hello to Crystal Clear!

Owning a pool is a joy, but dealing with a green, algae-infested pool can be a headache. Before you consider the drastic step of draining and refilling, let's explore why turning your pool from green to clean is not only environmentally friendly but also a cost-effective solution. At Scott's Pools & Spas, we specialize in reviving neglected pools, and here's why our method is the smart choice.

So How is it Done?

1. Comprehensive Pool Assessment:

Begin by assessing the condition of your pool. If your pool is clear but has some algae settled on the bottom, the recommended method is to perform external vacuuming. This can be executed through various means, such as vacuuming to waste via your multiport (if applicable), using a trash pump, or employing a spare pool pump to waste.

In the case of a cloudy pool, the process involves using a flocculent to encourage settling. Follow the subsequent steps for optimal results.

2. Net, Brush, and Thoroughly Clean:

For expedited results, focus on this step during the initial phase of tackling the green pool project. Skim the surface, net the bottom until minimal debris is collected, and meticulously brush every nook and cranny.

3. Professional Chemical Management:

The chemical aspect of pool restoration involves careful consideration of various variables, making it advisable to enlist professional assistance. Ensure proper pH balance and elevate Chlorine levels to effectively eliminate algae. Choose between granular and liquid chlorine, adhering to the instructions on the chemical labels to prevent over or under-balancing the pool.

For cloudy pools, introduce a flocculent into the water, causing fine particles to settle at the bottom within 1-2 days. During this process, keep the pool equipment off until completion.

4. Vacuuming and Chemical Balance:

After the settling period, vacuum the debris accumulated at the bottom of the pool, using the previously mentioned methods, with a focus on vacuuming to waste. Once the vacuuming is complete and the water level is restored, balance your pool chemicals for a pristine finish.

Why Turn, Not Drain?

1. Environmental Impact:

Draining a pool has environmental consequences, as the water often contains chemicals that can harm local ecosystems. By opting to treat and clean your pool, you're making an eco-conscious choice that aligns with sustainability goals.

2. Cost-Effective Solutions:

Draining and refilling a pool can be a costly endeavor, involving not just the water cost but also potential damage to the pool structure. Our pool cleaning services at Scott's Pools & Spas offer an affordable alternative that saves you money without compromising on results.

3. Time-Efficient Process with Headaches:

Draining a pool takes time, and refilling takes even more time. Unless coordinating with water trucks to deliver loads of water, you need to wait for the water to fill up to properly balance the chemicals. Our professional pool cleaning services provide a quick turnaround without the need of coordinating water trucks, so you can enjoy your sparkling clean pool quick with no headache.
