What could be causing cloudy pool water in my pool?


Answer by  BillyRae (11)

Mineral deposits and dirt can cause murky pool water. Doing some pH, calcium, lime and other pool tests will help you determine what is causing your murky water. Or even just a consistent cleaning!

First thing is check to make sure the pool is properly sanitized. Use your test kit and see if your bromine or chlorine is up to proper levels. Nine times out of ten thats the culpret. A properly sanitized pool is generally clear. Add algecide if necessary.

The problem is that the PH balance of the pool is off. This could cause black and brown algae. Testing the water and adjusting the chemical balance will fix it.

Pool water can also be contaminated due to bodily oils and cosmetic residues. Though this problems are simple to fix, keeping high maintenance on your pool can help prevent these from reoccurring.

Try adding an algecide. Also rarely green can come from copper pipes.  add a comment
