Problem with pool.

I am asking for help from anyone out there in forum land,our pool has gone cloudy after adding a chemical which is supposed to "sink debris" and therefore make it easier to hover out later.It is the first time I have used this chemical and am wondering how long does the pool remain cloudy,is this normal? Is it safe to use to swim in while cloudy?

I would be most grateful for any help or suggestions,thank you.


regards BL.

Re: Problem with pool.

Try leaving the pump running overnight to filter the pool. If that doesn't clear it 'shock' it with chemical for clearing cloudiness.

Re: Problem with pool.

I hate using this flock chemical, but it does clear small sometimes unhealthy particles from the pool.

We normally put it in with the pump running and then leave it overnight to settle and hoover in the morning. Sometimes it does remain cloudy and it takes 2-3 days to clear (we don't run the pump overnight, but run it longer than normal).

We do still swim when cloudy, nothing has happened to us yet! Not sure whether you really should or not though!

Also backwash the sand filter a cple of times after hoovering....

Re: Problem with pool.

Hi I assume the chemical is flock, this will take all small articles to bottom of pool, hoover this to waste, then check ph and chlorine levels and adjust.
