How to Clean a Green Pool

An effective green pool cleaning process includes a heavy dose of chemicals, the cleaning of the filter, and thorough brushing and vacuuming of the pool. It is not recommended that you attempt a green pool cleanup yourself if you don’t have the right tools (i.e., pool vacuum, brush, net), have never cleaned a filter, or do not feel comfortable handling lots of chemicals. If you need green pool cleaning, give us a call!

A typical green pool cleanup looks like this.

  • Cleaning the filter is the first step
  • Our next step will be to scrub the walls and floor to loosen any algae that is still present.
  • The pool will then be shocked with chlorine as well as a combination of other chemicals as needed.
  • It is necessary to vacuum the algae to the filter after the algae has been killed and has settled on the floor.
  • Thereafter, either the sand filter is backwashed to waste or the filter grids are cleaned again.
  • If necessary, chlorine is added to the water.
  • We vacuum again and clean the filter a third time if needed.
  • Keeping your pool clean requires attention to detail and requires several visits a day for several days in a row.
