How To Kill Black Algae In Your Swimming Pool
Black algae is perhaps the hardest algae to get rid of. It has very deep roots that can grow into the side of plaster or concrete pools. It also has many layers that protect it from normal chlorine levels. You will usually find black algae clinging to your pool walls or steps in very shady spots. So in order to get rid of this algae, you must be aggressive!
Black algae comes from the ocean. A common way for you pool to be infected by black algae is by a bathing suit that has once been in the ocean. With that said, always wash your bathing suits after swimming. It’s just good practice.
