If your water looks weird, something probably is weird. Cloudy water can be caused by early stages of green algae growth, chemicals that are out of balance, poor filtration or external contaminants like sunscreen.

Filtration in flux?

Step 1

Open your app for the latest WaterGuru SENSE for pH and low chlorine measurements. If they’re out of balance, WaterGuru SENSE will show you precisely how to get them back on track.

Step 2

Wait 24 hours and test again. You should be good to go.

Water out of balance?

Step 1

Try backwashing your filter or clean the filter media itself.

Step 2

Check your skimmer basket for debris and clean if necessary.

Contamination situation?

Step 1

Empty your skimmer basket.

Step 2

Skim or vacuum all debris from your water.

Step 3

Use a clarifier or flocculant to improve filter performance.

Step 4

Shock your water to remove contaminants carried by swimmers.

Preventing Cloudy Water

Step 1

Run your pump 8 hours per day.

Step 2

Use WaterGuru SENSE to maintain balanced pH levels (between 7.2-7.6) and Free Chlorine (1-8 ppm).

Step 3

Do a chlorine-free shock regularly – particularly after any parties, heavy rainstorms or particularly hot weather.

Step 4

Clean your filter with chemicals at the beginning and mid-point of pool season.

Step 5

Make sure all your jets are pointed downward to ensure proper circulation.
