Steps to remove algae in swimming pools 1. Brush the walls and floor of the swimming pool to remove as much of the algae as possible.     This will greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to kill and clear the algae bloom. 2. Ensure that the pH level is within the range of 7.2 - 7.6. This will ensure that any chlorine     added will work more efficiently - high pH levels in particular will impair the efficiency of     the chlorine doing its job.With the pool filter system running, add a chlorine based     swimming pool shock at the rate of 1.6 kg. per 1,00,000 litres of pool water dosage for     killing algae. The pool filter system should continue to run 24 hours a day. 3. If the condition of the swimming pool does not significantly improve after 12-24 hours of     filtering, add a second dose of chlorine pool shock at the increased rate. Repeat this process     until the algae has been eliminated. 4. Once the algae is dead it will turn a white or grayish color, and
