  2. The yellow algae also known as the alga with mustard, stick. Having a yellowish powder and normally in the shade, she resists chlorine and can be established even with a chlorine level of between 3 and 5 ppm.
  3. The black algae is a seaweed that clings to the walls, water can be clear. The bottom is often covered with small black spots or blue-green. The black seaweed also resistant to chlorine in the pool. One feature of black algae is that it becomes more difficult to kill, it grows in thick layers.
