    Welcome to the forum. Are you absolutely sure the room color change has made the difference?

    Actually its a hotel pool, I am front desk staff and our GM has also recently switched it to salt water pool. I have a pool myself it is an outdoor pool inground. I have never worked with an indoor and was wanting to see what maybe could be the problem.

    Yeah not too sure that pool is real cloudy!!!
    Are the tests all about the same, or should I be going to a different site for inside pools?

    Welcome to the forum!

    Need a full set of test results to confirm. FC, CC, TA, PH, CYA, Salt level We can help with indoor pools too....salt water pool is still a chlorine pool. It could be algae or even metals.

    Test kits recommended would be the TF100 for tftetskits.net or the Taylor k-2006.

    Tests are the same for indoor or outdoor pools. Painting the room blue wouldn't make the water look green.

    If it's a public pool, there should already be a test kit there. Who's in charge of the pool?
    5A NCAC 18A .2537(c) The owner of a public swimming pool shall provide for the operation of the pool by a person or persons who
    shall be responsible to the owner for operation, maintenance, pool safety and record keeping. The pool owner shall
    maintain documentation that the person responsible for operating the pool has been trained on pool equipment
    operation, disease and injury prevention, pool water chemistry and regulatory requirements for public swimming pools. A pool and spa operator certificate issued by the National Swimming Pool Foundation or other organization
    that provides training on those subjects shall be accepted as meeting this requirement.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
