From the Pool Truck – 11/15/11


We’re starting a new series here where we hope to provide very timely information about things we’re seeing in the field…while we’re cleaning pools.

All of these posts will be typed on my phone, so they will be short, precise, and possibly filled with Grammatical errors.

I plan on sharing my location that inspired the post, as well as a picture of the inspiration. Hopefully the information will be helpful!

Today I’m in the Vista Lakes subdivision, and I came to a pool with mustard algae growing in it. The reason for the algae was because the screen doors to access the pool have been locked for 3 weeks, and we have not been able to service it.

It’s very important for us to be able to access a pool weekly. Orlando has a very tropical climate, and even though it’s cooling down, a pool needs to be serviced weekly….otherwise things like mustard algae pop up.

Luckily, there’s a simple fix for mustard algae. I brushed and shocked the pool and cleaned the filter.

If you have questions, feel free to ask in the comments section below.
