Thread: Cloudy Water

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Cloudy Water

    5300 k gallon, AB vinyl, cartridge filter, installed 6/30/13.
    I tested Sunday. Had pool store check as well. They tested everything all levels are good.
    Its our first pool and have no idea how to fix this.

    Thank you,

    Welcome to TFP.

    What brand of pool and filter do you have?
    What size pump do you have?
    Post the numbers from the tests. Telling us that thay're all good doesn't help us figure out what's wrong.

    Have you been running the pump and filter 24 hours per day?

    If you have cloudy water chances are all the test numbers are not GOOD, either that or the test were not done right, which is a coin toss either way when dealing with pool stores
