Why Blue Pools Turn Green ?

Blue Pools Turn Green

There are a couple of possible explanation.

1. The first is an Algae Bloom. Chlorine can evaporate in heat and when the levels get low enough (3-5 milligrams per liter of water), an Algae Bloom can occur. Algae can enter swimming pools from wind, rain, or even bathing suits. But it does take some time for Algae to turn a pool bright green.

Copper Piping Water Into Green

2. Another explanation for green waters could involve Copper Piping. If Copper piping oxidizes, it becomes green. The green hue could show up in the water if the PH balances are off. This green problem can be avoided with sufficient chemicals or maybe you just like green pools?
