Can I swim with algae in my swimming pool?

It is never recommended to swim in a swimming pool if there is algae present. Why is this so? Isn’t is like swimming in a lake? Read on to find out the main concerns:


Water Clarity is a drowning hazard

If the water is cloudy or green and you can’t see all the way to the bottom of the pool floor clearly, your swimming pool can become a huge drowning hazard, even for adults. If someone swimming in your pool were to slip under the water for any reason, you might not be aware that they are drowning. If they can not be seen, they can not be saved.


Additional algae can form

If there is algae already present in your swimming pool, that means the sanitizer level in your swimming pool is much lower than it should be. Until you get the pool cleared up, the algae will continue to form and eat away at any amount of chlorine that is put into the pool.

Bacteria’s can be passed on to humans

When there is not enough sanitizer present in the water, bacteria’s and funguses can be passed from person to person and cause illness and skin bacterial issues. This can make someone very sick. Skin conditions can be caused from bacteria that builds up on and underneath your skin, which may require medications to cure.


It is always best to solve the algae issue first before swimming in the pool. You will only add to the problem if the issue is not taken care of prior to jumping back in the pool. Talk with us Today and let us show you how you can get your pool clear again within a few days!
