I have a SWG pool with a PebbleTec surface. The water appears clear, but in certain angles of the sun and definitely at night with the lights on, you can see plenty of fine particles suspended in the water. The chlorine levels have never been an issue; currently they're at 2.7. I have had the PH levels get out of wack in the past. Currently it's back at 7.4. But I've definitely had some calcium scaling on and a whitish film on the pool tiles.

Could these fine particles be from scaling? Could they be plaster dust? They don't seem to ever be filtering out. I've also checked my DE Filter grids and don't see any signs of damage for leaking DE.

Here's a video of what you can see in the water at night.


During the day you can't really see the particles at all unless you're underwater with goggles.

Mr. Engineer, you have an outdoor swimming pool and not a water purification system. I think your pool looks great! Go swim and enjoy it!!
Haha, thank you, and I hear you. That's actually the reason why I've never asked about it in the past. I figured it was normal until recently when I started comparing with the water of friends' pools in our same neighborhood.
