What would you like to do?
By what other name is calcium carbonate sold and will it eliminate greenish swimming pool color?
what is calcium carbonateBaking Soda and not necessarily remove greenish water. sodium carbonate is used to raise PH and Alkalinity to 7.2-7.6 pH ppm and 80-120 ppm alkalinity.You must use a test kit to find out where your pH is and adjust from there weather you need to go uo using calcium carbonate(baking Soda) or down using hydrachloric or muriatic acid or dry acid.Also you use alkalinity up aka soda ash (sodium bicarbonate) to raise your alkalinity without raising your pH.

What causes cloudiness and powder like formation in a swimming pool if the powder is a greenish brown color?
cloudy pool . If you are refering to a white cloudiness, There are two reasons for this one is not enough sanitizer or chlorine it should be between 2.0-5.0. The other is p…oor circulation either your filter is dirty or worn out and not filtering enough. A commercial pool or multi family pool needs to circulate 24-7. A residential pool should circulate at least 8 hours a day in order to keep water healthy.The powder is formed from Alkalinity being to high. Alkalinity should be between 80-120 ppm and PH maintained around 7.2-7.6 ppm. Take a sample to your local pool dealer and they will tell you how to fix it.It is important to know how many gallons is in your pool Lengthxwidthxavg.depthx8\n. \nKenny Kummer E.M. Systems
Calcium Hypochlorite . The most common culprit is the use of calcium hypochlorite as a sanitizer.
Low calcium hardness is increased by adding calcium chloride. The amount needed may be worked out using the calcium chloride calculator .on the link below divide the correc…t amount of calcium chloride into 3. Add the first part and circulate the water for at least 4 hours. Test the water again and repeat the process until the desired level is reached.
Shock treatment for the green part. If it is still cloudy you can add a clarifier sold at your local pool supply.
Have the pool drained and acid washed.
Neglect, poor filtration run times, lack of proper chemistry, lack of chlorine, high bather load, dogs in the pool, leaves and debris in the pool, etc, etc,etc,etc.
It sounds like you have a problem with algae Try shocking the pool and adding an algaecide. While you are getting the chemicals you need at the pool shop take in as ample of w…ater and have it tested. The pool shop wil be able to tel you how to balance your water to avoid the problem in the future.
turquoise or aqua. you can also try teal or cyan.
well you might need to put algecide in it but if you have already done that then when you put your chemicals in they mixed with another chemical and its causeing a side affect… that's waht happend to mine.
google "troublefreepool" and "calcium deposits", or just go to troublefreepool.com and look for calcium information either on the forums or in "pool school". this website has …the best info, and will not steer you wrong. do not rely on advice from pool stores - they are interested in selling you products you do not need, and can actually make your problems worse.
Turn the pool upside-down and knock on the bottom.
pools do not use blue colour titles.
You have to drain the water down and add fresh water in the pool. Try not to use so much calcium hypocrite (Shock) in the pool because this could be why your level is high.
the "greenish look" is probably just an alge build-up from the water being heated by the sun, and is constantly contained in your pool. other paricles like, possibly misquito …larve and branches, and dirt can give your pool a dirtly look. solution? chlorine. ps. not too much though - too much chloirine can effect your water
If it's too high, your water might get cloudy, or you might get scale at the pool's water line or inside the pool heater. If it's too low, it can cause the surface of a con…crete pool to erode. If it's too low in a vinyl or fiberglass pool, it will have no effect, so don't worry about it. Pool dealers will still sell you calcium to add to vinyl pools, because they like selling stuff, and have been told by the chemical companies that you need to have it. They don't know why, though.
