if you use a chlorinator in your pool you will get a white milky substance in your pool form the chlor-tabs. some brands as Pace have a high amount of inert ingredients that cause this problem. you can alleviate this problem by "sweeping" your pool bottom to the drains and back wash your filter often. sweeping should be done every few days to help keep this substance from building up and swimmering activities mixing it into the water.

A: milky or cloudy water is usually the result of overuse and the lack of filtration. The proper balance of the chemicals in the pool are very important to water quality. Sweeping the bottom has little to do with cloudy water unless you have a DE filter and it is sending DE back to the pool. Or you have a painted pool that is chalking. Those are the only sources of cloudy water. Swimming has little to with mixing the water or the chemicals.

If your pool water is ever milky you have too much or not enough chlorine

If the swimming pool water is milky, it is advisable to have the level of stabiliser (cyanuric acid) tested. A level of over 80ppm in the pool water is likely to lead to "chlorine lock" which can turn the water milky. If the problem is the stabiliser, you will need to drain some of the swimming pool water and refill with fresh water to bring the stabiliser level down to 30-50ppm. To avoid the level getting out of control, use a non-stabilised chlorine product such as calcium hypochlorite. http://www.havuz.org/pool_blog/2004_01_01_pool-problems.htm
