Ph level is at 'ideal' chlorine level is at 3.0 but the pool water is still cloudy. Please help?


The cloudiness could be suspended particles or algae. Use an algae k i l l er as recommended, then a flocculant (water clarifier) as recommended, then vacuum the pool bottom and run the filter overnight.

After that check the ph, alkali level, chlorine level, and adjust as needed. That should do it.

the filter is probably too small so you need to clean every day if not 2x a day super shock pool until clear

My water looks a little cloudy. how do i clear it up. and are you supposed to shock your pool once in a while.


My wife takes care of our pool chemicals. When it gets cloudy, just hit it with a normal dose of chlorine. A normal dose is what you would put in in a given day. Run the filter for 24 continuous hours if necessary.

Water comeing out cloudy and makeing suds in pool


There could be a few things causing these problems. How old is the sand in the filter? Filter sand looses its filtering ability after 3-5 years and needs to be replaced. If the sand needs to be replaced, make sure you get actual pool filter sand. A lot of big box and home improvement stores sell play sand as filter sand. That will cause your pool to stay cloudy and never clear up. If the sand is less that 3-5 years old, you may need to clean it with a liquid filter cleaner that is poured through the skimmer. This works quite well!

Another issue causing the cloudiness and bubbles could be the type of chemicals you are using. I know that shock from big box and home improvement stores cause the water to be cloudy. Algaecides from these stores also cause foaming.

Cloudy brown dirt getting in my pool from sand pump


The dirt you are getting is most likely from the air, dirt and dust present in rainwater and the small amounts present on human bodies. It is settling out and going to the bottom. I recomend a vacuum attachment that connects to your pump/filter to keep this cleaned out. Basically it "plugs In" to the outlet on the pool and will get all that out for you.
