    Cloudy greenish pool - New Pool owner

    Hello from south Alabama. We bought a house in the fall with a pool and I can’t figure this thing out. I found this forum a few weeks ago after a 4 inch rain turned my pool from clear to cloudy and green overnight. I ordered a TF100 and started using liquid chlorine (10%) and brushing daily...

    Cloudy pool 2+ weeks into SLAM despite passing OCLT and CC under 0.5

    I am two weeks into a SLAM to get my 26K gallon AG pool operational. I have seemingly tried everything under the sun to get my pool clear - it is currently a cloudy light blue and has not improved much over the last week (maybe 5% better in one week). If I look closely I can barely see my pool...

    Pool has been cloudy all season, test results in - any advice?

    Hi everyone - My parents just got their pool tested as it's been cloudy since they opened it back in May. Local pool store said the "water is great", but it being still cloudy, made me want to ask you all for any suggestions on what is needed? More vacuuming, more backwash? Looks like the FC...

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    Pool was very green upon start up and we had a little trouble with the pump system. Everything seems to be running now. I have been shocking the pool quiet often. I’ve gone through roughly 32 gallons of shock. Filter has been running continuously for 9 days. We have a Hayward sand filter with...

    first test, cloudy pool, help please

    First time pool owner. This morning I finally get the K-2006 test kit and did the first test, here is the result: 12x32 inground, sand filter, vinyl, not very sure about the volume, one store shows 79939 liters, other shows 61203 liters, but I guess it will about 20k gal? Cannot see the bottom...

    Cloudy 1st Summer

    So happy for our first summer with a pool, BUT cloudy water. Here is the cycle: me “ugh, the water is cloudy,” my husband “the pool store said its perfect.” After multiple rounds of this, my husband gets out the clarifier. Still cloudy. Crystal clear water only is seen after flocking, but not...

    Need help in clearing up cloudy pool. It has been a month with little success!

    I’m new to this site but anytime I google about anything, this is where I end up! I’ve decided to stop looking elsewhere for advice. The pool store has helped very little and we’ve been in several times for testing & purchasing pricey products. My head is spinning with the amount of information...

    Cloudy water, low outlet pressure

    I recently upgraded to an Intex Krystal Clear 1200 gph Sand Filter pump combo on my round intex 15' x 48" pool and I have already had to drain once because of cloudy water and very small particles that would fall to bottom of pool. When I would try and vacuum, the particles were too small to...

    Cloudy Water Coming Into Pool From Jet

    I had an issue with my pool this week. It had been a little cold over the last week so we weren't swimming. I had the cover on. I noticed a couple days ago the water was seriously cloudy. I shocked the pool and that did the trick. Pool is clear as can be now. All chem levels are reading good. I...

    New pool owner-pool is cloudy

    Hi everyone! Super excited to just be moving into an existing home with an inground gunite pool. We had a trusted pool company come out to check it out before the purchase and he gave it the all-clear. But the pool was apparently green the day before closing so the sellers had some pool guy...
