Pool Professional Algicides

Algae cause green, slippery deposits on the walls and bottom of your pool. Unfortunately, disinfecting the water with chlorine alone is not sufficient against algae. Excellent agents with long-term effect against algae infestation are Algaecide liquid and Algezid Premium from Pool Professional. Outside the bathing season, the Pool Professional winter care product works very well against algae infestation. In addition, you can also use the winter care product for basic pool cleaning in the spring.

Frequently asked questions for Algicides:

If you put the chlorine tablets directly into the water, the chlorine will attack the liner, discolouring it and making it brittle. Irreversible damage not covered by any warranty may occur. All our dosing floats have an adjustment ring - to adjust the release to the pool water. Alternatively, you can also put the tablets into the skimmer.

The ideal pH value is between 7.0 and 7.4. If the pH value is too high (above 7.4) the water tends to form lime deposits (turbidity of the water). Eye and skin irritation could occur. The disinfection effect could also be reduced. If the value is too low (below 7.0), the water becomes increasingly corrosive. Odour nuisance and irritation of the mucous membranes may occur. We recommend measuring the value twice a week. For pH regulation we recommend 'ph + (plus) granules' or 'ph - (minus) granules'.

The ideal chlorine value is in the range of 0.3-0.6 mg/l. The measurement should be taken 1-2 times per week. If the value is too high, bathing is not recommended. If the value is in the lower range, we recommend products such as Chlorine Tabs 20, Chlorine Tabs 200, Quattrotabs 200, Total Blue 20 as continuous dosing.

Your chlorine level seems to be clearly too high - these tablets react up to a maximum concentration of 6 mg/l. Dilute the water taken and test again. If the values are too high, reduce them to a normal level (0.3 - 0.6 mg/l). After a shock chlorination the test is also not possible. Please wait a few hours.

Cause: Lime precipitates, not filtered particles
Solution: Adjust the pH level to 7.2 to 7.4 (by adding pH-Plus or pH-Minus). If there are suspended matters turn off the circulation pump and remove the flakes on the bottom with the pool cleaner after about 10-12 hours. Lime precipitates in the pool water (turbidity, shimmering white coating on the water surface, etc.) usually disappear shortly after adjusting the pH level and after the addition of a flocculants (while the filter system is running - WARNING: prohibited with cartridge filter systems and filter balls; the filter can stick!). Backwash thoroughly. Clean cartridge filter or replace by a new one.

Cause: Faulty filter function, too many organic substances
Solution: Backwashing. If the filter system is calcified, use an acidic filter cleaner. If the filter system is ok, make a shock chlorination, meaning raise the chlorine level of the pool water up to 3 mg/l for a short time. The addition of flocculant is recommended as an additional measure (WARNING: prohibited with cartridge filter systems and filter balls; the filter can stick!). Backwash thoroughly. Clean cartridge filter or replace by a new one.

Cause: Too little disinfectant in the water, algae growth
Solution: Adjust the pH level to 7.2 to 7.4 by adding pH-Plus or pH-Minus. Let the filter system run continuously during the first 1-2 days. For disinfection with chlorine: Wipe dead algae from the pool walls. Remove algae from bottom with a brush and an aspirator. Make a shock chlorination, meaning raise the chlorine level of the pool water up to 3 mg/l. The addition of an algae protection is recommended. Backwash thoroughly. The added chlorine has degraded after a few days. Backwash thoroughly. If the water is not clear after 1-2 days, repeat the procedure. Cartridge filter system: Frequently clean or replace the cartridge. Alternatively, empty the pool completely, clean thoroughly and refill. After adjusting the pH value, treat the pool water with algicide to prevent new algae grow.

Cause: Iron deposits in the water
Solution: Adjust the pH level to 7.2 to 7.4 by adding pH-Plus or pH-Minus. Add flocculant. (WARNING: prohibited with cartridge filter systems and filter balls; the filter can stick!)  Extend the filter runtime, backwash the filter system thoroughly. In the case of a cartridge filter system, clean the cartridge regularly and replace it if necessary.

Cause: Inadequate chlorine dosing, non-degraded organic substances
Solution: Adjust the pH level to 7.2 to 7.4 by adding pH-Plus or pH-Minus. After a shock chlorination up to ca. 3 mg/l this smell will disappear after a short time.

Cause: Inadequate chlorine dosing, non-degraded organic substances
Solution: Adjust the pH level to 7.2 to 7.4 by adding pH-Plus or pH-Minus. If there is too little chlorine in the water, increase the chlorine content. If the chlorine content is too high, reduce the dosage or drain the pool water and refill with fresh water. Again, pay attention to the pH value.

Take a bucket of warm water, add the required amount of chemical for your pool and stir well. Then empty the bucket with the mixture evenly into the pool with the filter system switched on (circulating).

The lid of our chemical articles also serves as a dosing aid.
