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.

Why is my swimming pool water cloudy?

There are two primary straight out explanations shady pool water: substance and mechanical. In this manner, the first stage to taking care of the issue is figuring out if you have a mechanical or a substance issue staring you in the face. Probably, synthetic uneven characters are to fault -however it is moderately simple to preclude a mechanical reason. Examine each of the accompanying mechanical reasons keeping in mind the end goal to discount them:

Determine that the channel you're utilizing isn't excessively modest for your pool.

Check to guarantee the pump and the engine are of a satisfactory measure for your channel and sort. An oversized pump can cause poor water filtration.

Clean the channel to guarantee fitting water stream. In the event that you have not adapted the sand channel media for a couple of years, the sand might have advanced directs in the sand couch where the water courses through averting fitting filtration. In the event that you have a DE channel, altogether clean the inward parts of the channel before re-accusing of DE powder. Flush cartridge channels then afterward cleaned them utilizing a catalyst or a cartridge channel cleaner.

Measure if you are running the channel long enough every day. Work the channel framework eight to twelve hours every day.

Look at the water dissemination, positioning the bay planes descending and acknowledge getting a programmed pool cleaner if the flow isn't exceptionally great. Make sure to vacuum and brush the pool on a normal support.

Pump is blowing cloudy water back into pool

Cloudy water is the bane of sand filters!. I suggest letting filter run day and night. Do not backwash until the pressure rises 8 - 10 pounds above clean starting pressure. Do not try to vacuum or stir up the sediment. when water clears, vacuum to waste. Keep the hose running while vacuuming. A dirty filter is a better filter (up to a point). At a higher pressure the filter will trap more of the fine particles that are clouding your water.

I can't get the pool clean. I vacuum it & clouds up the water. The next day it like I never did it. I have backwashed and flushed . No change has been noticed.

Add a quart of drop out clarifier to the pool and let it circulate a couple of hours then cut the pump off and let it settle for 8 hours then vacuum the sediment on the bottom to waste and backwash the pump again. The cloudy water is caused by sediment too small to filter out and the drop out causes it to settle to the bottom.

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.
