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.

No, the water is dirty. It can make you sick. Wait til the pool is cleaned before going in.

Algae buildup will cause a salt water pool to turn green. A clogged filter will allow the algae to buildup in the pool.

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.

most bodies of water have salt in them, correct? and most bodies of water have moss in them, correct? so if your pool has salt in it, and is under sunlight, its going to produce moss!

You have to get the metal out of your pool.

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

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.

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.

NO you don't have to drain your pool in winter. Just add winter algicide this will prevent your pool water going green during winter. Ofcourse don't expect your pool to remain clean over winter, you will need to vaccum and test ur water for correct amount of chemicals.

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.

Green pool water is caused by algae. To remove the algae, bring the pH level of the water to 7.8, scrub the sides and bottom of the pool, shock the water with chlorine, then vacuum up all the dead algae.

The water of your new plaster finished pool might turn green when you added chlorine because of iron in your water. You pool generally needs to be filled with water that has been filtered for iron.

The pool water is green because of algae- which is a type of plant. You just need to add more chlorine to kill off the algae...

Test your water for high levels of copper.
