Types Of Algae


Algae in swimming pools is often referred to by its color:

  • Green Algae – by far the most common and relatively easy to treat;
  • Yellow/ Mustard Algae – troublesome to treat but also relatively susceptible to treatment;
  • Black Algae – can be very difficult to get rid of, especially in plastered pools;
  • Pink Algae – not an algae at all, but is a fungus called Paecilomyces lilacinus that causes slimy white, pink or grey colonies.
