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.

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 intex saltwater system pool is cloudy


The chlorine level maybe too low and it is allowing algae to start growing.
Check the Ph level, it should be around 7.
Check the chlorine level in the pools water, use your chlorine test kit.
Check the salt levels, make sure it is at the correct concentration, too low a salt level and the Intex will not be able to generate enough chlorine.

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.

Let your filter run for a couple days, you will get the undisolved solids out of the water.

Cloudy water is junk floating in the water. "Super Blue" is a product I use to make the junk stick together to be collected by the filter.

CLOUDY WATER


I too have this problem after treatment for algae, especially if I got a day or two without running the pump, it starts to get mildly green. After adding the algaecide, it kills the algae, but leaves what I call the white dead floating...it takes several days for this to phase out.

If you aren't already doing so, put 3" tablets in the pump basket housing, that helps dramatically. Put a pair of knee-high pantyhose (one inside the other), on the return inside the pool. (you will be amazed what it catches after a few days). Also you can try some "clarifier" to help clear up the cloudiness.

I'm no pool expert, but have dealt with the cloudiness myself. Through trial and error, have learned that cloudy water doesn't necessary mean dirty water. It will clear within a day or two if you are keeping stabilizer tablets in pump basket and using shock once a week. And run the pump for about 8-12 hours a day, it will clear up quicker. And to me, using the pantyhose is an extra-filter and it catches the 'gunk' that the sand in the filter isn't catching. (it can't possibly get everything). Be sure to backwash your pump frequently too.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!

Hi, i also have cloudy water, i have a 1.5 hp pump with a starclear 1200 filter, i think the filter is bypassing as the filters internal seals do not seem to be tight enough...and this is the second...


Some times if you have an imblance of salts within your pool you will see this "cloudy water" you are referring to. Make sure that the water is cloudy before entering the filter and not the other way around.
Next, make sure that the current gasket/o-ring that is being used has silicone based grease applied to the gasket/o-ring surface. When you replace the filter and reset the oring and gasket enusre that the proper tightening torque is achieved at each bolt. Make sure that you cross tighten the bolts. Much like replacing a wheel on a car.
Finally, if all of these steps have not helped you then you can make your own gasket by either using "Gasket Paper" or "Liquid Gasket". Advantage to using Gasket Paper is that it is less messy and easier to change out.
With Gasket Paper, make sure that you trace out the previous Gasket on Gasket Paper before installing. I would still recommend using a light cote of Silicone Based Greased around the new gasket before installation.
