Mustard Algae Treatment
Mustard algae (yellowish/brown color) is a spore that is released from nearby trees. You start to see the first bloom at the end of June - early July. You know it is mustard algae when you brush and shock, it comes right back to the spot you just brushed. You will also notice if you super shock the pool, test will show zero chlorine. The algae is resistant to chlorine and somehow depletes your chlorine to zero.
We recommend removing all items from the pool during treatment, wash bathing suits in hot water and detergent, keep cleaning robot in the pool during treatment. Treatment should be noticeable in 24 hours. Pre-existing mustard algae may take two visits to remove. Mustard algae is a re-occuring event for most pools. In order to prevent, keep the chlorine residuals high and filtration at its max.
