Not enough info like what kind of chlorine and if salt water set up Cloudy water is usually not enough filtering or low chlorine for an extended period of time Be more specific.

No matter what method salt or regular water you need to turn the pool water over at least 3 times a day/night

Lets use generic #'s if you have a 4000gl pool and a 2000gph pump you need to filter at least 6 hours you will need to adjust the #'s for you and figure out how long to filter.

It is also important to keep the chlorine between 1.0 and 1.5 then set your ph level with either ph up or ph down depending on what yours registers at after the chlorine is set.

Remeber that you must first set the chlorine since the ph is affected by chlorine level.

once both are set then the ph will go up and down with your chlorine so keep it in check after initial setting

for now add a little extra chlorine and filter for 24 hours then vaccum remeber to take out the filter cartridge once or twice a week and hose it hard with the garden hose. I am on my 3rd season with the same cartridge

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.

Cloudy foamy water


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

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.

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.

Our pool is cloudy, we got rid of the alge but cannot clear the pool. Have had this system over a month and still not clear . Followed install directions but no luck


This is a sign of not running the system long enough... 1st, make sure you have the correct amount of salt... The manual is very conservative... I have a 18 X 33 oval pool and I run my pump in the summer at 10 to 12 hrs with the chlorinator at 8 to 10 of those hrs and have very clear water.. If I drop from those hrs, my water starts getting cloudy and the sides of the pool get green...
Hope this helps and if it does, please rate!!!
