    Blond hair....

    I went to the salon today and got my hair done. Blond highlights. I'm newer to this forum but have successfully transitioned my pool to a TF pool and have done a ton of research on here, so when my stylist said as I was leaving "just be careful in your pool because sometimes pools will turn that blond a little green" I was able to smile and nod as I laughed under my breath walking out the door No worries here!!

    Re: Blond hair....

    You want to make sure you don't have "metals" especially copper. What were you using before you used this method ??
    You might need to break down and take a sample to a pool store and see what your readings are.

    Re: Blond hair....

    Dang, and here I was sounding all cocky. Haha

    I have read that it is the copper that does the staining and I haven't had an issue, even with my girls' bright blond hair. I was trying to make the point that a lot of people don't know the difference and assume it's the chlorine in pools that does the green staining. BUT, since you've thrown me off my high horse, I suppose I SHOULD test for metals since I DID use some algicides......

    I got the in joke from the get go.

    Friends of mine are fascinated when i explain facts like that.

    If your girls are blonde and it never turned to greenish, probably fine.

    All algaecides don't have copper, there are several different kinds. I think you should get back on you high horse with your ungreen hair.
