How professional pool service can restore the beauty of your pool

Unlike oceans, lakes and rivers, which can have who-knows-what kinds of substances in them, swimming pools are designed to have nothing but crystal-clear water.  When pool service and cleaning is needed for pools with ugly green or black water, count on Splash Splash Pool Service of Brandon FL to solve the problem quickly.

Many times homes may have been unoccupied for many months or years when they are listed for sale. If the pool maintenance is not done during this time a real mess can result for the new buyer. But don’t worry Splash Splash Pool Service cleans up the worst of the worst, turning those ugly pools into clean, ready-to-swim pools.

Why is my pool water green?

Looking outside and seeing that your pool water is turning green can be a little scary, but don’t worry – you’re not on the set of a Stephen King movie.  Rather, you have an algae problem, which is fairly easy for a pool service professional to fix.

Water and algae go hand in hand.  If left untreated, water will serve as a perfect environment for algae growth.  Fortunately, algae can be cleaned up, and it can be prevented with regularly scheduled pool service.  We perform weekly pool cleaning and maintenance services for customers throughout Tampa FL, Riverview FL, Valrico FL, Seffner FL, and the East Tampa area of Hillsborough County.

How does algae get into a pool?

Algae is a living organism, and there are many different types.  For example, giant kelp and seaweed are classified as algae.  The green algae in a pool begins its life as small spores, which can be transported in rain, wind, dirt and even on swimmers’ bodies and their swimwear.  While algae types differ, all of them are photosynthetic, meaning they convert light energy (sun) into chemical energy that provides the fuel for life.

Algae spores thrive in damp areas, where they easily grow and spread.  This is why you can look at your pool one day and notice only a little greening and then a week or two later the water looks like a nuclear disaster has occurred.  You can’t stop algae by wishing it would go away.  It will grow and grow until it finally completely takes over a pool.
