Soapy looking bubbles when people are swimming

Postby richardsonpoolguy » Fri 30 May, 2008 14:12

My pool water is clear and looks clean but when folks jump in and splash around there is an unordinary amount of "bubbles" that accompany the splashing around. The bubbles fade away but at a relatively slow rate. They look like soapy bubbles but obviously they are not soap related. My pool in vinyl lined, too. Any help/advice please :)

Are you using bacquicil to sanitize or is it a chlorine pool? Certain algaecides have been known to cause foaming if too much is added as well.
