Tallahassee Yellow Algae Removal Help

Do you have yellow [mustard] algae in your pool?

In this Blog we talk about what Mustard Algae is and how to get rid of this Chlorine resistant creature. Yes, creature. Algae is a living photosynthetic creature that proliferates in direct sun.

Stagnant water + Sunlight = A literal growing problem.

So here's the easiest way to get rid of your mustard algae.

  1. Measure your pool and apply a healthy dose of Sodium Bromide.

  2. Brush/ scrub sedentary algae from all surfaces INCLUDING your pool ladder, skimmer, and hard to reach places. The algae needs to suspend and circulate to die.

  3. Hyper Cholrinate based on size of pool.

  4. Run your pool filter for 8-10 hours during direct sunlight for 2 to 3 days.

  5. Titrate a sodium bromide solution for a small batch cleaning of your pool equipment. If you are not a professional or a chemist, consult a pro before mixing chemicals and always use proper safety precautions.

  6. Follow up with another water test, brushing, and chlorination if necessary. For older pumps you may need to backwash and or clean your filter to completely remove this pesky creature!
