And what can you do about it.

Temperatures are starting to get warmer again, the sun is shining a little bit longer and plants are blossoming: no doubt, spring is back!

At Your Pool, we know that this is the time period that most of you will be starting to use your swimming pool again. It’s not a nice surprise when you discover that the colour of your water is cloudy, almost green. Are you not sure what to do about it? Don’t worry, we are going to give you some tips to stop it and prevent you from having the same problem in the future.

Firstly, you need to identify the reasons why your water is cloudy.
- Is it because your filtration system is inadequate? Maybe your filter doesn’t run for a long enough period or maybe it is too small for the size of your swimming pool.
- Is your pool water experiencing an early algae growth?
- Is your water balance incorrect?

To each problem its solution, and here are a few solutions to help you solve them:
Before anything, try to increase the filtration duration per day. To give you an indication a filter should run approximately 10 hours per day in hot weather conditions.

If the water remains cloudy, it can be your chlorine level that is too low allowing early algae growth.

A good way to get rid of the algae is to add chlorine to your pool water. If your pool water remains cloudy it is most likely due to your water balance levels. If the PH level is between 7.2 & 7.6 add a Super Clear tab to the water. If the PH level is lower than 7.2 or higher than 7.6 add Balance Pack 100.
