There are myriad reasons for a cloudy pool, so unless you know the specific cause of the dreck floating around, it's hard to give a remedy. Having said that, consider the following. Are you running the filter long enough? The most important factor in keeping a pool clear is filtration. Period. You must run the filter long enough to turn over the water twice a day, so you have to know the approximate water-handling rate of your pump and filter. Double the volume of your pool and divide by the flow rate of the filter, which is usually spec'd in gallons per minute. Take that number and divide by 60. That will tell you how many hours per day to run the filter. Second, what is the alkalinity? You have to adjust that number properly before adjusting pH and chlorine. For vinyl-liner pools, the alkalinity must be around 100 ppm. That value will likely bring the pH into an ideal bracket. I use Arm & Hammer baking soda (i.e., bicarb) to raise alkalinity. How much to add depends on the size of the pool and the existing alkalinity value. Third, make sure the pH is right and there's enough free chlorine in the pool. Fourth, use a flocculant. That's the thick blue stuff. It causes fine particles to flocculate, or stick together, making larger particles that get trapped more easily in filters, especially sand filters, which don't trap small particles as well as DE filters do. Fifth, use an algaecide or algastat. There are copper-based and silver-based products on the market. Sixth, shock twice a month, more often if it's ridiculously hot or if it rains a lot.
Phosphate buffers put in cloudy pools will clear it up. The buffer clears the pool by reducing CH levels.
run the filter.
my 21 ft ag pool was blue and cloudy. The cause was leaves and pine needles at the bottom. Once I got them out - i shocked it again (3 gallons) and that helped
give it a few days it should clear up you may have to backwash if using sand filter
pool water that is cloudy don't swim in it
Cloudy to clear
WHERE??? CLEAR AND CLOUDY WHERE??? CLEAR AND CLOUDY
You might want to try a longer filter run and chlorine.
cloudy is the opposite of clear.
You should check your chemical balances. If they are not in the ideal range the pool will becom cloudy. I would go to your nearest pool store and ask them for the chemical testing kit which will include instructions as well as the chemicals needed to balance your pools chemical levels.
Cloudy water is NOT NECESSARILY algae growth. Cloudy water can be caused by LOTs of things. Algae, poor filtering, bad circulation, a dirty filter, poor water balance
Check your Ph level. This can also make pool cloudy.
yes. always draw up clear before cloudy. (regular before NPH)
I guess 'clear' like: the sky is cloudy. or: the sky is clear.
Use extra chlorine for about a week to shock the pool. As long as the water stays clear, you don't have a problem. If the pool gets cloudy, consult a professional.
The water in a pool can be cloudy because the chemicals are not balanced. If people wear sunscreen and go in the pool before it has soaked in it can also cause the water to become cloudy.
A simple water clarifier available at pool stores and retailers such as Lowes or Walmart will clear up the water. Use as directed. It only takes a few ounces.Balance chemicals and add a clarifier available at you local pool supplyYou need to get your water tested to see what is causing it. Take a sample to a local pool dealer, they can test it and they should also be able to tell you what you need to put in it to clear it up.
Some antonyms for cloudy is clear and cloudless.
Because electricity turnes water green.
The "cloudy" insulins are long-acting, while the "clear" insulins are rapid or short-acting. Drawing up the clear insulins first prevents the vial of short-acting insulin from being contaminated with a long-acting insulin.
clear, if your water is cloudy then you might want to check your filter
When it is cloudy the heat in the atmosphere is held in, but when it is clear the heat escapes.
The first thing to do would be to test for the Total Alkalinity. If it is not within the 60-120 range the water will be cloudy and nothing will clear it up except adjusting it. Another thing would be to chemically clean the filter. Baquacil recommends that you chemically clean it at least once a month, if the filter is clogged up it could cause the pool to be cloudy. The last resort would be to add the Flocculant.
