How to precent my pool water from going cloudy? With the recent heat wave we have had, a common question we are getting is why has my pool water gone cloudy and how can I fix it. Fear not! Crush Pools has the answers for you.
How to Prevent My Pool Water From Going Cloudy?
A pool usually goes cloudy when the chlorine level is low. With the hot weather we have had lately, the chlorine in your pool will burn off quicker than it normally would. To avoid the chlorine levels from dropping too low you can do these four things:
Bonus – Ideally you want an energy efficient pump running 24 hours a day. Crush pools can help with this if you are interested (https://crushpools.com/swimming-pool-pump-installations/)
My Pool Water as Already Gone Cloudy
If your water has already gone cloudy it will take a few days to get it back into swimming condition. In order to clear up the water you will need to add liquid chlorine. Depending on the size of the pool and how cloudy it is you should add 10-20 litres every other day until the water clears up. When you can see the bottom you should vacuum the pool. Ideally you should vacuum on waste mode. This allows you to bypass your filter and shoot the algae and debris that has sunk to the bottom of the pool out your waste line.
You should also check your filter and make sure the presser gauge is not over 20. If it is you should backwash and rinse your filter. If you have a cartridge filter you should take out the cartridges and clean them.
