Causes of Cloudy Swimming Pool Water

Pool chemistry and maintenance is the most complicated part of managing a swimming pool. Incorrect chemicals and putting inappropriate amount will cause cloudy water and if not treated properly, it may lead to algae build up. Knowing what would cause any possible problem would help a lot to prevent it. 

These are the major causes of cloudy swimming pool water. 

  •  Unbalanced Chemicals. The incorrect chemical balance will surely make your pool look more unclear. This is due to too much or too little level of chlorine, calcium hardness, alkalinity, stabilizer, and pH. Always have a test kit to properly check the levels of each chemical daily or depending on how often you used the swimming pool. This process will help you avoid chemical imbalance. 
  •  Defective Filter. A broken or damaged filter is the main cause of poor water circulation. Check the water filter if it is clogged or run down for this may also cause poor performance. Poor filtration is also another cause. This means that you need to run the filter long enough to clear the water.
  • Environmental wastes and Contaminants. This environmental waste such as insects, bird droppings and even fallen leaves and debris that may block and interfere with the cleaning process. Sunscreens and lotions, sweat and urine will also affect the pool water.
