Pool Chemical Tip from your Houston and Cypress Pool Builder

Cloudy Water: Cloudy water can be attributed to either chemical or physical causes. Common chemical causes include the following:

  • High PH
  • High total alkalinity
  • High calcium hardness
  • Low (or No) free chlorine residual
  • High levels of combined chlorine
  • Improper product addition

If the water is in proper balance, and chemicals have been added properly, then you should look to physical contributions to cloudy water. These include:

  • Inadequate circulation
  • Poor filtration

The vast majority of cloudy pools are due to poor filtration. The most overlooked aspect of pool care is filter cleaning.
