How to clear your pool water
1. Deep clean your pool
First, give your pool a good scrubbing. Remove large debris with a well. Brush your walls well with a pool brush, then vacuum.
If you have pool algae, you need to deal with it first!
2. Apply your shock treatment in the evening
To get rid of all the dirt in your cloudy pool water, shock (use Ultra shock and Pristiva Premium shock for salt pools). This dose of chlorine eliminates disorders caused by bacteria, organic contaminants and algae.
Note: Always do your shock treatment at dusk or night.
3. Filter your pool water non-stop
Make sure your pool mechanics are maximized
- If you have a variable speed pump, increase the speed of it.
- Make sure your filter media is cleaned or changed.
- Make sure your pool pump is running 24 hours a day.
4. Use your background drain
The main skimmer sits on the surface of your pool. It can’t reach the debris on the bottom. Your bottom drain is your best friend; atthis point, the suction should come from the bottom drain first.
5. Balance your pool water
Once you are sure your water is as clean as it can be, test it or take a sample to your local pool store. Adjust the chemicals if necessary.
6. Use a water clarifier
You can incorporate this additive as the Dazzle New Nature sheen pool clarifiers into your weekly water maintenance routine as a preventative measure. Water clarifiers won’t solve any of the more serious problems that can cause a cloudy pool, but they will help by coagulating debris, making it easier for your filter to catch it.
How long does it take for the water to clear?
Depending on the condition of the pool, it can take 2-3 days for your water to clear. Just be sure to run your filter 24/7. Maintain the chemical balance of your water and add the right water clarifier for good results!
