Sometimes when you have a cloudy pool it can be very difficult and time
consuming to get it clear. Or sometimes it happens over night. Here
Are some tips & tricks to help you clear that pool quickly.
1. Its always good to use some sort of clarifier. What they do is
gather tiny particles that are making your water cloudy and bring them
together to create bigger particles so that your filter will have a
better chance of picking it up.
2. A chemical called Floc or Flocculant is sometimes a good idea if you
are in a rush. Lets say you have a pool party tomorrow and your pool is
cloudy. But this method is very time consuming and difficult. The idea
here is the Floc gathers all the particles that are making your water
cloudy and sends them to the bottom of your pool creating a huge cloud.
At this point you will need to manually vacuum up that cloud through
your filter waste option or backwash port. Again it is difficult and a
lot of water is wasted but it will clear your pool in one day.
3. To help your filter pick up more debris, especially if you have an
above-ground pool, you can create a bottom-drain effect like an
in-ground pool by simply hooking up your manual vacuum and turning it
upside down in the middle of your pool. That method will help collect
the cloudy particles at the bottom of your pool rather than just your
filter skimming the top.
