Chemical Treatments For Pool Cleaning

By Carl Cleaner

Bacteria are most likely the immediate cause why your pool will turn into unviable recreational areas. Usually the cause of bacteria build-up is the irresponsibility of the pool owner to have proper maintenance in their pool.

There are a lot of pool cleaning options available in the market. One of the most popular ones is the use of chemical based agents in cleaning in the pool. Chlorine based cleaning agents are amongst the ones mostly used by pool owners. They are proven effective to wear off germs from your pool waters. Below are two pool cleaning mechanisms that make use of chlorine:

1. Swimming Pool Shock

Pool Shocks are advisably to be used at least once a week. Especially when the pool is used quite too often within the time being, or after a heavy rain, and or during extended hot seasons like summer. Pool Shocking is simply “extremely chlorinating” your pool. Thias means that the chlorine content level of your pool is increased drastically to saturate the water with the chemical to ensure that all bacteria in it is eradicated. Every pool owner should have a basic knowledge about this method being one of the most commonly used treatment option.

2. Algaecides

Because swimming pools have water, it is likely that it becomes a target to algae attacks, especially when the water in it stays unchanged for some time. When algae have inhabited your favourite recreational area, it will turn it into a slimy, slipper place with lots of green stuff afloat. Algaecides are the best solution to this problem. It will kill almost any type of algae inhabiting your pool. There are three types of algae that usually infest pool waters: The green, black and mustard algae. The green are obviously the green coloured ones that float in the center and the side-skirt of your pool. They are slimy characteristics and are the types that you dominantly see. Black algae on the other hand are ironically not coloured black. They are blue pigments that float along with the green algae but much smaller than the former. Mustard algae look like dirt and are often mistaken as one.

All of the mentioned treatments above are chemically based. Albeit them being effective in cleaning you pool, there comes natural hazards along with their usage. It is important to note precautionary measure each and every time you make use of these treatments.
