The easiest way to remove algae from a saltwater pool is to shock the pool. Whether or not algae is present, the pool should be shock treated each week. Shock treatments are not the same as super chlorinating treatments.Continue Reading
A well-balanced pool will take the shock treatment much better than one in which the pH is off. Balance the pH level of the pool before beginning the shock treatment.
Use 3 pounds of shock treatment for pools containing 10,000 gallons or less. Follow the manufacturer's directions for best results.
Although a super chlorinator will not remove algae, it will keep it from building up in the first place. Be sure to use a super chlorinator every week.
