little foamy bubbles all over top of water

Postby Guest » Fri 09 Jun, 2006 20:15

We opened our pool two weeks ago. We've shocked, used chlorine and algicide. The water was very cloudy, but blue. After checking the ph we found it was high and added muriatic acid to lower it. NOW WE HAVE TINY FOAMY BUBBLES H-E-L-P!

1. Make sure your not useing cheap algacide. like WAL-MART or KMART brand.

2. check for air leaks. Had a bad foaming problem last year turned out to be a bad seal on the pool pump.

New pool user, had the same problem for a couple of days, noticed pool pump was not full of water. Adjusted the seal on the pot lid. No more foam!
