Why Does Algae Grow In Pools?
Alga is a plant-like organism related to seaweed. These tiny aquatic organisms can multiply rapidly given the right conditions. Some types can grow in the shade, but most require some light to thrive. There are several different types of algae that grow in pools.
- Green Algae
- Brown Algae
- Blue-Green Or Black Algae
- Mustard / Yellow Algae
- Pink Algae
Why You Have A Green Pool
Green algae are the most common type found in pools. It’s usually found floating in the water and creates that green color you might be familiar with. Your pool surfaces can become coated with this green, slimy substance, making accidents more likely.
Yellow, Black Or Blue-Green
Yellow or mustard algae is a wall clinging variety. This type is usually found in shady areas of the pool and can be very tough to eradicate. Reinfection is common, making DIY efforts frustrating and costly.
Black algae appear as dark black or blue-green spots and can also be extremely difficult to get rid of. It has strong roots and a protective layer over the top of the plant. It can extend its roots into your pool’s plaster or the grout around your tile.
If the roots are not completely destroyed, they can and will grow back in the same places over and over again.
Pink Is A Pain
Pink algae will appear as streaks or spots in crevices and corners of the pool, especially on smooth surfaces. Look in areas of your swimming pool or hot tub with low flow or circulation away from the pool cleaner and pool brush.
Why It’s Important To Remove Pool Algae
Algae can make your pool look bad, cause structural and equipment damage, and make visibility and stability more difficult in the water. By neglecting this problem, you also create an environment where dangerous pathogens like E-coli can grow.
- Clogged Filtration Systems
- Cracked / Damaged Surfaces

- Sanitation Problems
