Pink Bacteria (Pink Algae)
Pink bacteria is known by many names: pink algae, pink slime, white water mold. However, it is actually a type of bacteria. Pink Bacteria can be very difficult problem. Bacteria tends to grow much faster than algae, and will grow in difficult to reach areas – such as behind fixtures.
It’s more common in pools treated with Baquacil/Biguanide, but occasionally will occur in pools with low chlorine sanitizer.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
Pink Bacteria Recommendation
To get rid of the bacteria outbreak, as much of the bacteria must be present in the water for treatment. Depending on the severity, this may involve taking off fixtures or scooping out bacterial slime into the pool.
We recommend using Pink Treat® to kill the bacteria in the water. One bottle treats 20,000 gallons. Simply follow the directions and super-chlorinate.
Once you have gotten rid of the bacteria, consider using No Mor Problems® to prevent future occurrences of pink bacteria. Simply squirt in a few ounces every time you add chlorine.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″]
