How do you get a swimming pool to have that clear blue color you typically see in nice pools?
I have found with communicating with other pool owners that the color of your liner has alot to do with the water color. My pool is blue and white which gives the water that tint. If you have trees or other objects that reflect in your pool that affects the true color. Although it may not look clear it probably is! When I reopen my pool for the summer you can differently tell that it is not clear,but alittle TLC and its back to normal. I use chemicals from a company called "In The Swim." I purchase a spring start up kit and follow the directions and usually within a week or less my pool is crystal clear. I do my weekly test to make sure that the chemical balance is where it needs to be. I treat it when nessecary and in the winter I purchase a winterizing kit.
Though chemicals from the above mentioned chemical are of very low quality,And your pool dealer who says the liner is the reason.have a little credibility Balanced water is the key to color. Chlorine 3.0 ppm Ph 7.4 Alkalinity 100 ppm Calcium in the 250 350 ppm range and a cyanuric acid level of about 60-80 for outdoor pools,Your water will be a carribean blue. I service pools in Utah and have the prettiest color in the valley.Pay attention to detail
A: The color of the liner etc may have some influence on the color or appearance of the water but proper water chemistry and filteration are key ingredients to sparkeling water.

You need to add chlorine. I doubt in the above answer that chlorine will clear up a "blue water" situation. BTW, is the water or the pool surface - floor, walls etc - blue - t…here is a huge difference. The blue affect on the plaster could mean a greatly out of balance chemistry - pH and Total Akalinity. Never heard of the water turning blue unless there was an additive put into the pool that would purposely turn the water blue. If you're asking about the pale blue colour of swimming pool water, it's because water absorbs light. Light that is visible to humans comprises the seven colours of the spectrum. The light at the red end of the spectrum gets absorbed, but the blue does not, hence you can see it in water of sufficient volume.
Answer . Do you want to stain the pool these colors? Or have you already done this thru lack of knowledge of swimming pool chemistry? If the latter, you have grossly added… too much muriatic or dry acid to the pool. Unless your area has acidic water then you still have failed to correct the problem with chemicals made for that purpose. The pool has been in an acidic condition for some time in order to get these stains. The stains are a result of improper chemistry balance - pH and alkalinity. The stains are coming from the copper pipes in your system - if no copper pipes then the heater heat exchanger - it is copper. Adjust your pH to and maintain at 7.2 to 7.8. Adjust you alkalinity to and maintain at 80 to 120 ppm. You need a good four in one test kit to do this. Cheap test kits do not give you what you need in order to maintain water quality in your pool. You have a sizable investment in your pool - don't skimp - it will get you every time. If you have caught the problem early enough it may give you no further headaches. Wait the approx. 5 to 8 years for when the water needs to be changed and then have the pool professionally cleaned but be sure to get someone you trust and get recommendations. See what work they have done before deciding on any one company. k
Answer Lots of filtration and chlorine
Answer Simply, no. Unless you dye the pool red, then the semen will glow.
no not really. it will disolve in to the pools chemicals and that's what makes it invisable. :] The concentration from one or two little accidents is too small to see, bu…t it is urine, perspiration etc that is responsible for sore eyes etc. In chlorine-treated pools at least, they react with the disinfectant to produce unpleasant irritants and release chlorine. The chlorite itself does not cause irritation when used in the correct dilution (2 - 4ppm).
The average size of an inground pool in a private back yard is 20ft by 40ft. You can also get other sizes as well!
Possibly 15' x 30' x 3' to 5' shallow end x 8' deep end.
Your question is too vague. Be more specific.
I personally use a floating pool cleaner available from poolrite in Australia. It is the only pool cleaner I use, as it removes over 95% of leaves, dust, seeds and pollen. … * The key word is abundance. The above answer probably will not work. If you have a massive amount of leaves then are relegated to just scooping them out with a leaf rake. Once you have gotten the heavy stuff, you can then use what is called a "leaf gobbler." It is a device with 3 wheels, made of plastic, has a 2' net to catch the debris, and a garden hose attachment to propel the leaves thru venturi action up into the bag. Once the bag is nearly full, pull the device out and empty it. Then go back for the rest of the junk. What is left and is allowed to settle then you can vac as normal to get the dust etc.
Try a combination of algaecide and flocculent ask your pool shop about the best brand available in your area, then follow the instructions. you will loose about a foot o…f water but its quick and economical.
The reason why there is no tide reaction which is the effect of the Moon is that the swimming pool is small. In addition, a ocean is much larger than a swimming pool.
Because blue makes it look tropical and pretty! haha. Hmm im not sure. mabe so that it looks like the sea! sorry if i wasnt help. :D Because blue makes it look trop…ical and pretty! haha.

You need to shock it and test the pH. there is a product called shock it especially for that. If it keeps getting green even after put chlorine in it you need to adjust the pH….
pools do not use blue colour titles.
no,you can't see chlorine in pools'duh stupid self
A general answer for a very general question: shock, brush, vacuum, and algaecide.
You have to get the metal out of your pool.
