Sometimes when a pool becomes milky cloudy due to suspended debris and unbalanced chemicals, the pool needs to be "flocked". Raise the PH to 8.2 and test with a reliable test kit or strips. Add Flock and set filter to recirculate (bypass the filter) for 4 hours and then shut down overnight. The next day the pool will be crystal clear with a white powder covering the bottom of the pool. The next step is important. Vac all of the white powder out of the pool on "waste". Do not vac in filter mode. You want all of this out of the pool. If the problem persists, inspect your filter sand or cartridge.

Hi Lorna, I just spent over an hour vacuuming all the fine particles off the bottom. I really hope this fixes my problem so I can close my pool and look forward to getting better at this next year! Thank you, for your post! :)

A swimming pool requires a large investment of time and money from a pool owner, who is usually trying to create his/her own relaxing backyard paradise. Water problems that take away from this lavish backyard getaway, such as cloudy water, can be very frustrating . Cloudy or dull pool water is caused by improper chemical balance or fine debris suspended in the pool water.
