A cloudy swimming pool can sometimes feel like an riddle, wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.   There are many reasons that can cause a pool to cloud up, and attempts to correct the problem can often exacerbate it.  What a cloudy pool really requires is a common-sense approach and a step-by-step troubleshooting guide, and that is exactly what this post from Matt Giovanisci from Swim University provides in this post.   Identifying the causes of cloudy swimming pool water, then moving towards solutions makes this post a timely one for swimming pool owners and service professionals across the country this Spring.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

Why Do I Have Cloudy Pool Water?

There are so many causes of cloudy pool water, but I have broken it down into three main causes.

1. The Environment
Everything around your pool can cause your water to be cloudy, that includes: weather, birds, construction, trees, gardens, the sun, people, and pool algae.

2. The Pool Filter
If you filter system is not working properly, or you’re not running your filter at least 8 to 10 hours per day, then you are at high risk for cloudy pool water.

Your filter system constantly cleans the water in your pool. Without it, you’re left with stagnant water that could become cloudy.

3. Pool Chemicals
An excessive amount of pool chemicals can cause your water to be cloudy. That includes: high pH, high alkalinity, high chlorine or other sanitizers, and high calcium hardness.
