What causes white foam on the surface of a swimming pool?
White Foam Answer I have found that the use of so-called waterproof sunblock lotions cause a white sludgy foamy texture on the surface of my pool. I was using 45 SPF No-Ad WaterProof Lotion and it came right off - even after applying 45 minutes before. I switched to Banana Boat 35 SPF waterproof and sweat-proof and the white stuff disappeared. That could be one solution. Good luck. And possibly overuse of a certain type of algaecide.

Thanks for the feedback!
What should you do if you added chemicals to get rid of algae in your swimming pool but now it has white foam floating on top can i add more algeacide or will that make matters worse?
Answer . If not much foam, wait and keep running the filter.. Ah, ha, you DID NOT FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE LABEL. Now you'll just have to wait until it decides to di…ssapate.. YOU ARE RUDE...........

Answer . It could be staining from corrosion of metals in the water due to a low pH. pH should be maintained between 7.2 and 7.6 at all times for hundreds of reasons, inc…luding to avoid staining, extend the life of interior finish, pool equipment, swim in comfort without burning eyes or itchy skin, and to optimize the effects of your sanitizer. Hint: Make sure your test strips are within their expiration date, or bring a water sample to a pool supply store for a free test. If you do the latter, bring samples to several stores for second and third opinions if it is convenient. The reason for this is because it is their best interest to sell you as many chemicals as possible.. You may have iron in the water especially if you are on well water.
Answer . For rectangular pools, multiply the length times the width. For other regular shapes use formulas for the appropriate geometry. For irregular shapes, the simplest …way is to draw the shape on paper and use a planimeter to determine the area. If you are clever, you can use a tracing of the shape and a good balance to determine the surface area.
Suppose you could but who would want to. You possibly have added too much algaecide. Have a dirty filter. Have poor chemistry - out of balance chemically. Too many people in p…ool. Lack of proper filtration.
It's probably a surfactant, usually from soap. Your chemical balance may be wrong, some soap or other detergent may still be in the water, or you might have a nascent algae pr…oblem. Have the pool cleaned by a professional, and drained if necessary.
Calcium deposits --- poor water chemistry - pH and total alkalinity.. adjust both.
pH and total alkalinity out of balance.
Lack of proper filtration and lack of proper water chemistry and neglect.
Yes it does
Yes, there is an outdoor pool. The indoor pool is still intact,however, it is no longer used. The room was converted to the pressroom.
To determine your pool's surface area in square feet use the following:. Round pools Area = RXR x 3.14 ex if the pool is 24 round take 12x12x3.14. Rectangle Area = LxW so a …20Feet x30Feet Rectangular would be 20x30=600sft SA. For those pools which are odd in shape Area =(A+B)xLx.45 A & B being the width in different sections if different in dimensions. On the web you can usually find calculators that will do this for you.. Pool Safety and Care tips at www.prospectpoolsllc.com/blog
a number of things weather, chemicals, temparture or your pool is just being stupid...
What cleaning product can you use to clean the white film caused from evaporation in a swimming pool?
A weak acid solution will usually clean this of. (take care with the acid though)
Depends on how thick the foam is and how much. Some pool chemicals cause a foam on the surface of the water when added to the pool water, but if you added dish soap to the wat…er that foam would ruin the pool filter and swimming in it wouldn't be good.
