If you go to the pool store they sell a chemical called pool shocker. This shocks your pool water back to its normal color.

i need to know how to get rid of green water

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.

You have to get the metal out of your pool.

You're pool has run out of cholorine. Without a sanatizer your pool will turn cloudy and then green. Shock it right away and make sure you have enough chlorine to sanatize. You also have to run the pump longer to filter out contaminants. You are not adding enough chlor I have a question what if your pool water goes from green to blue foggy water? Then what do u do to fix it? My dad has tried almost everything!

algaecide. just don't put too much in because too much of it will stain your liner and that's what turns peoples hair green.

Sound like you have a problem with algae. An algaecide can be purchased at a pool shop to fix this problem. Just in case take a sample of the water with you when you go.

You have to treat pool water with pool chemicals and use a pool filter to get and keep the water clear.

The color of the pool is no problem at all. If the water is green, who in his right mind would jump in?

Drain/Backwash the pool, clean the inside, and add fresh water.

The water isn't green. Sediment sticks to the pool's floor. The water looks green Scoop some of the water in a bowl and you'll see that the water is clean. Get a pool vacuum to get the sediment off the floor. The water will look clear.

means there is algae in your pool

No, algae makes your pool water green. Use chlorine to kill the algae and maybe a good algaecide to keep it clear.

It is not the salt water pool or the salt water that is turning your hair green. It is a poorly maintained pool with a chemical imbalance - pH and total alkalinity out of required parameters.

I am not sure why this has not been answered. The most common reason for the green is algae growth. If you put on a solar cover and ignore pool maintenance, then the algae will grow as the water heats and when you remove the cover, the pool will be green

Your pool water probably has high copper content. You can remove it with a metal inhibitor.

You must first determine the cause of the green water - then rectify that. The green water could be the result of the equipment not functioning correctly, or not being operated correctly, or being undersized for your pool. Or it could be a water balance problem.

Your pool water may have turned green even after adding Fresh and Clear because of metals in your water. It is likely copper that is causing the water green. Your pool store will have products available to remove the metals and clear your water up. You might also have algae if you are not putting enough chlorine in the pool.
