How to Get Rid of Swimming Pool Algae
by Rudy Stankowitz (Author), Richard A Falk Consulting (Editor), Isaac Miller, Ph.D. Microbiology (Editor)
This is a great book for anyone who takes care of swimming pools❗
A MUST HAVE that applies to pools of any shape or size, whether you go on to take the certification class or not, you’ll have fewer bouts with green, yellow, and black algae 🦠with this ‘How to’ book on your shelf.
“Rudy, your field samples are very interesting – and rare. There is almost nothing published on the varieties of algae in pools… If you focus on black “algae,” you will be the first person in nearly 40 years to document it. That would be really, really cool.” – Dr. Roy D. Vore, Ph.D., Microbial physiologist, Senior Consultant, Vore & Associates LLC, previously Technology Manager, BioLab inc.

Take the Next Step in Your Pool Education
- Purchase the How to Get Rid of Swimming Pool Algae book before you begin – there is stuff in that book you’re gonna need.
- 5 lectures are followed by a 10 question multiple choice open book quiz. Why take a 50 question test all at once if you don’t have to.
- You do have to watch at least 90% of the lecture to advance, but we’re not going to let a score other than 100% on a quiz hold you up – you only need an 8 out of 10 in our class to advance.
- This is not a ‘one and done’ test – you get two shots! So, no need for stress if you fall shy the first go at it. Not only that, but you’ll have 90 days to complete the 6-hour program.
