How clear should my water be? A very common question. Here is mine on a calm morning where I could finally vacuum. Yes I know, I'm still manually vacuuming. It took me 7 years to finally get an SWG, I'm working on a robot. :) So now let's see your water clarity.

The things that amazed me about the robot is how it keeps the pool floor spotless. It gets a lot of the fine stuff I can barely see.
I also just a SWG after debating it with my self for a few years :)

I've had my swg for a little over a year but took me 5 years to figure out how good it would be... wondered what else I was missing out on so I'm happy to say I went VS pump and robot within the next year!

This is a very useful thread. I assume the pool pump is off when determining if the pool water is clear or crystal clear

Not always. Mine was off simply because I only have one skimmer and had my vacuum connected (just finished). But some others look to have their pressure/suction cleaner going. Those with robots may/may not have had the pump on. Wind effects how the water looks (from above) as well.
