Going green is all fine and well for the environment, but when it comes to your pool it can be very problematic. Unfortunately, Florida’s summer rains and the occasional hurricane can wreak havoc on your pool water’s chemical levels. You may glance out your window one day to notice the water is slightly less blue than it was. Wait another day or two (because life) and the frogs may be eyeing your new pond with envy! What’s the quickest way back from green to blue?
First, vacuum and skim out any debris. Next, brush every surface within your pool. Then shock your pool. (Use pool shock or a few gallons of chlorine - whatever your local pool store recommends.) Finally, run your pool filter. Be prepared to brush the surfaces and clean your filter daily until your pool is back to normal.
