We used Hth Pool Chemicals to rid our pool of black algae

So, I came up with a foolproof way to get rid of it! I used the HTH Pool Ultra Complete Shock treatment.

It works well, and doesn’t over chlorinate your pool. Remember the key is to get rid of the algae as fast as possible and get back to swimming, so I like to use the good stuff.

I usually  chlorinated my pool by adding a couple of these HTH®  Extended Skimmer Sticks into my skimmer. They last a couple of weeks, and do an amazing job. I left this in the pool overnight, and then the next day, I brushed the algae spots with a brush.
