Cloudy pool water care guide. Simple steps for crystal clear pool water, spend less time on maintenance and more time living the life you want.

Why does Pool water become cloudy?

Pool water can become cloudy for a number of reasons:

  • Incorrect water balance
  • Poor or insufficient filtration
  • The start or end of an algae infestation
  • A build-up of bather wastes

Using a clarifier can quickly restore water sparkle. However, before using them you should check the following:

  • The water is correctly balanced.
  • The filtration is running for a minimum of 8-hours per day (24-hours for best results).
  • Does the filter need backwashing, or the filter media a chemical clean?
  • The sanitiser level is maintained within the ideal range.

Once you are satisfied that none of the above are causing the cloudiness, a Clarifier will help you achieve crystal clear water.
