Stankowitz’s Algae Prevention & Eradication Certification Course maps out a treatment protocol that focuses on understanding the different types of algae and their weaknesses. He covers the pool conditions favorable to algae growth and environmental factors that may be pool-specific. The pool professional also discusses the filtration, circulation, and chemistry requirements needed to prevent and treat algae. This class takes the guesswork out of pairing algaecides and algastats to specific types of algae growth. Stankowitz’s approach is as unique as it is effective in teaching people to recognize each pool as an individual regarding treatment and maintenance in what he refers to as a “personalized pool treatment protocol.”
