Check the copper levels. Copper in chlorinated pool water can often cause a clear blue color.

Also take a look at the chemicals you are using. Perhaps one of them is causing the color.

Blue water chemicals

Copper containing algaecide, clarifiers or water "brighteners" that may have a color cast, flocculant or clarifier that turns the water a hazy blue immediately when added.

it may be caused by copper algaecides, ionizers, or corrosion of copper and brass pipes, fittings and heaters.
Shock treatment with sodium or lithium hypochlorite, accompanied by constant filtration and use of a clarifier.
