Cloudy swimming pool water?

Postby dannimick » Sat 14 Dec, 2013 04:28

Hey guys,

Hoping i can get a few tips on how to look after my Salt Water Inground 60,000ltr pool. I dont know much on how to run a pool and normally rely on taking my water sample in and then just following what the pool place recommends. Our pool was left until about a week ago so ill write down what we have done so far and go from there:

Last week: Water was clear but sides, bottom etc was thick green algue. Back flushed, cleaned filters, did shock chlorine treatment, added a heap of chemicals and salt going by what the pool shop instructed me to do.

Yesterday: Algue all died from chemicals added last week, but water looked very cloudy so i took another sample to the pool shop and they said i needed to add more chlorine and water clarifying tablets which i did.

Today: Water is still very cloudy (can only see to second step) and when i was brushing then bottom to try find the creepy crawley the water on top started turning green obviously still green algue at bottom?

I havent had the creepy crawley going at all just had the filter running full time. I have plenty of chlorine, floc, water enhancer, clarifying tablets etc but as i said completly clueless as to how to fix this problem.

Hope this makes sence and someone is able to help me, we are all hanging to go swimming :)
Thanks in advance.

I thought this can be due to excessive chemicals and may be you have not cleaned it at regular interval.
