    Settlement on bottom of pool

    Please help! We just got a new SWG and an intex above ground pool, the water is fine and all the levels are good. The pool water looks great when nobody is swimming but while we are swimming it becomes very cloudy and you can see a white settlement on the bottom. I scoop out the bugs every day and we also vacuum it. Any ideas?

    It may very well be the bleached out carcasses of algae that you're killing off at the same rate they are reproducing.

    Instead of telling us "all the levels are good," tell us what they are and where you got them. That will help us help you. pool-school/read_before_you_post

    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!
