Response to The green hair your children are experiencing is likely caused by oxidized metals in the water. The metal that produces the green tint is copper, which is most commonly found in algaecide, though it naturally occurs in some water. The product you will want to use is called Metal Free. I would recommend having your pool water tested for metals. The test result will determine how much of the product you will need to use.
