There are several reasons why a pool can be cloudy.

There may not be enough free chlorine in the water.

The filter system may not be running enough to properly clean the water.

There may be too much calcium in the water.

The Ph may be too high.

The filter system may be compromised.

If your pool water is a blue or gray color and you want to get it to clear up, try using bleach. If you can't get it to clear up, you may need to drain the water and refill it.

algae will make water in a saltwater pool green If boosting the chlorine doesn't clear it up pool shops will have algaesides and floculants to the water clear again.

First hit it with a copper based algae side. If that doesn't start clearing it up Go to the pool shop and get a strong clarifier. Turn of the filtration equipment and cast the clarifier evenly over the water and let it settle for a couple of days. you will note that the water is now crystal clear except for a layer at the bottom of the pool. Gently vacuum this layer to waste. Do not put it through your filter. Then top up the pool.

It depends on what is causing the water to cloud. You can take a water sample in to your local pool dealer and have them test it and tell you what chemicals you need to add to clear it up.
