Black Algae

Black algae is a living organism that grows on porous swimming pool surfaces and shows up in the form of black spots.  It is the most aggressive form of swimming pool algae and the most difficult to get rid of.  Shocking or adding algaecide will not kill it.

If you see the onset of black algae on your pool walls, don’t lose hope, it might be difficult to treat but it is not impossible.  With the right pool care routine, you can keep those black spots from coming back.
