I have a above ground pool that has like a white residue on top, the pool is filled with well water so im not sure if this is the problem or not. All of this pool stuff is new to me so any kind of help would be appreciated.

Welcome to TFP.

What all have you put in the pool. (chlorine, algaecides, clarifier, etc.)

Algaecides are bad about causing foaming.

When I first put the pool up I was told to put mueratic acid and chloride, thats all that I've put in it . The pool runs on a sand filter, which someone had told me that maybe the sand needs to be replaced, I purchased the sand filter at a garage sale. Now I live in the country with open fields that they just disked so I thought maybe it could be from all the dirt that the tractors kick up... not sure of anything really, and thank you for the welcome
