Three important things to keep in mind:

  1. Most pool owners are not properly trained in how to maintain their pools. Most professional pool stores do do an overall good job with their customers, unfortunately, many of these stores are not up on the best or newest technologies or even knowledge to treat these problems. Mold and slime problems are not going away. They have to be dealt with aggressively and continually. There's no other way around it..

  2. Many if not most aboveground pools have inadequate circulation & filtration systems. This is especially so with Intex brand or other soft-sided pools purchased from big box stores. And it's a real shame. A proper system is well worth the investment for your family's health, safety and enjoyment. Consider upgrading your current system, you'll be so glad you did.

  3. In most cases you did NOTHING wrong to contribute to this problem. It is more of an environmental issue that you have little control over.

Residential pools are regarded as swimming pools that particularly cater to small or smaller groups of swimmers and bathers such as families and their friends with an occasional pool party. Pool size and gallons run the gamut from about 1,500 gallons all the way up to about 40,000 gallons!


All residential pools, regardless of any of the parameters mentioned above share several common things: water, a main surface, plumbing lines, a filter system (sand, diatomaceous earth - DE, or cartridge) and some type of treatment system. Treatment systems (depending on the pool owner's preference run from chlorine to bromine to biguanide products (such as BioGuard Soft Swim or Lonza Group Baquacil) to salt to ionizers such as King Technologies Pool Frog or Zodiac Nature2.


Whatever you have or are using, and regardless of how well you treat and care for your pool and the water, biofilms will grow and eventually lead to potential  mold and slime issues.

Pool mold and slime will grow anywhere it can get a foothold.


The majority of Pool Mold & Slime issues that we see from customers across the USA occur when there is poor circulation and filtration time (less than the recommended 8 to 12 hours daily from spring opening to fall closing); but not always.


The second "cause" for pool mold and slime is from inadequate or lax water treatment - lack of maintaining good water balance, proper sanitizing levels, inadequate shocking or oxidizing routines, etc.  But as above, not always.

Since 2012, ParPools.com has been recommending this system and implementing with as many customers and  in as many swimming pools as possible. From what we're hearing, the results are remarkable!


The Five Pillars are something that you should be doing anyway as you care for your pool, but the real magic is in the Three Foundations.


Briefly, here are the 3 Foundations:

  1. Loosen, remove and prevent biofilm buildup in evey part of the swimming pool environment - surfaces, plumbing and filter system - with AquaFinesse Pool Water Care Tablets. Since biofilms can grow everywhere and anywhere, you have to be able to get at them anytime and all the time. Simple once a week application is all it takes.

  2. Naturally consume or breakdown organic contaminants. NaturCare Enzymatic Pool Clarifier and Phospate Remover is a multifunctional product with the greatest concentrations of "pure batch" enzymes found in the pool & spa industry. Period. Enzymes continually work to break down greases, oils and other environmental contaminants that would otherwise require more sanitizing and shock or oxidizing products. With regular use, the water feels and looks cleaner. Surfaces almost become "squeeky" clean. Filter runs are typically increased. Just add weekly as a part of your regular maintenance program - 2 oz go a long way!

  3. Inhibit algae growth with BioGuard Optimizer Plus. Algicides are good and should be used as part of a regular maintenance program, but algicides can become overwhelmed heavy rains dropping algae spores into the pool.  Aside from being a natural algae inhibitor, Optimizer Plus helps in keeping your pool water in much better balance. The active ingredient in Optimizer Plus is a natural buffering agent the keeps the pH and Total Alkalinity more stable. An added benefit is really soft feeling water. Once Optimizer Plus is added to the pool, it needs only periodic topping up (about every 3 to 4 months). Sorry, BioGuard Optimizer Plus is not available in California.
