How to Get Rid of Yellow Algae

Ben Diefenderfer
Yellow algae is more commonly found in southern climates. It clings to pool walls, toys, as well as your bathing suits. Contrary to its close cousin green algae, yellow algae is more resistant to chlorine and usually requires the assistance from a good algaecide like Sodium Bromide in order to clear and eliminate the bloom from your swimming pool. So where do you start?

Chlorine vs. Saltwater Swimming Pools

Chlorine vs. Saltwater Swimming Pools

a&a manufacturing pool partsBen Diefenderfer
Saltwater pools use a process called “electrolysis” to produce just enough chlorine to disinfect the water. Commonly referred to as chlorine generators, saltwater pool systems make an electrolysis process with a control box and a salt cell. As pool water passes through the cell its exposed to a low voltage of electric current sent from the control box, which separates the sodium atom from the chloride atom and essentially transforms the salt into sodium hypochlorite and hypochlorous acid. Hypochlorous acid is the same sanitizing component produced when any type of chlorine is added to pool water.

How to Add Chlorine Tabs to your Swimming Pool

What is Chlorine?

Chlorine is one of the MOST EFFECTIVE sanitizing agents for not only swimming pools, but for water in general. Small amounts of chlorine are commonly added to city tap water in order to combat germs and bacteria, so it makes sense for a “puddle” of water the size of a swimming pool to use chlorine more frequently. With routine chemical checks you may find that you go through chlorine slower or faster depending on a few variables not limited to: pool usage, weather related events, and outside temperature.

Tech Thursday: How to Save Time & Money by Switching to a Variable Speed Pool Pump

Tech Thursday: How to Save Time & Money by Switching to a Variable Speed Pool Pump

Ben Diefenderfer
A Variable Speed Pump can help improve your filtration & circulation based on a few key factors. Climate, water chemistry, pump horsepower, and overall pool usage come heavily into play. Chlorine has a tendency to evaporate quicker when exposed to warmer climates. The evaporation is even worse when the water is still. This poses an issue because because most people leave their pool off during the hotter parts of the day. Running the pump at lower speeds during the day as well as when the pool is in use will greatly improve chemical circulation while allowing the filter more time to catch dirt and debris.

Tuesday Troubleshooting: How to Prime a Pool Pump?

Ben Diefenderfer

Why prime the pump?

If you're new to the pool game, you must know that you should NEVER run your pool pump dry! The pump is meant to move water and thus should always be full of water. Running the pump dry will cause irreversible damage, and potentially other issues to your equipment. It is important to keep the pump free of debris and well lubricated in order to maintain a consistent prime and avoid any future issues.
