Cloudy Pool Water
Cloudy pool water is a bummer! It ruins the look of your pool and can make swimming uncomfortable and unsafe. Why is the water cloudy? It means that there is something wrong with your equipment or chemical balance.
Check the water balance – chlorine, and ph at the least - if your balance is off, contaminants may not be dissolving properly. It could be a sign that algae or worse is on its way.
If your water is balanced, the next thing to look at is filtration. Make sure your filter isn't damaged and replace any cartridges or screens that are damaged. Try using a cartridge rinse to remove any buildup on your cartridges. Regular use of a cartridge rinse can make your filter system run better.
So, how do you get things back to clear? Make sure all of your equipment is functioning properly. Your pool works as a system, and if one appliance is out of order, the whole system is affected. Make sure you are running your pump long enough and that nothing is clogged. Test regularly and adjust pH and chlorine accordingly.
