Water temperatures in Swim Spas tend to run a little cooler compared to spas & hot tubs and a little warmer than the average swimming pool. That's something to keep in mind. Whatever you have or are using, and regardless of how well you treat and care for your swim spa or Endless Pool, biofilms will grow and eventually lead to potential mold and slime issues.

Swim spas are regarded as a kind of hybrid pool/spa 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 1,000 gallons all the way up to about 2,500 gallons!
Almost all swim spas, regardless of any of the parameters mentioned above share several common things: water, a main surface, plumbing lines, a filter system (again, almost all utilize a 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 tionizers such as King Technologies Pool Frog or Zodiac Nature2.

Pool or spa mold (also known as White Water Mold) and slime (Pink Slime) will grow anywhere it can get a foothold. By the way, neither of these conditions are algae!
The majority of 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 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.
