Causes of Algae in Swimming Pools

There are many contributing factors that can lead to algae growth in your swimming pool, but the most significant is not having enough sanitizer plus poor water circulation from not running the pool pump enough. Other common influencing factors that allow algae spores to grow include:

  • Neglecting to shock your pool, leading to higher levels of chloramines (chlorine that has done its job and is now inactive)

  • Improper pH and total alkalinity in pool water

  • Insufficient doses of stabilizer, creating a low chlorine level in the pool

  • Too much phosphate in pool water

  • Neglecting to use preventative doses of algaecide

  • Not running pool equipment long enough

  • An overall irregular or nonexistent pool maintenance program

  • A pool finish that is very porous

  • Weather conditions that are hospitable to algae, such as high humidity and heat
