Green / Cloudy Water / Slippery Sides Algae Shock dose with chlorine (see start up dose) and add Algaecide
Too much chlorine Overdose Allow time to naturally dissipate or buy a chlorine reducer
PH hard to control Alkalinity low Seek advice on how to raise total alkalinity
Can't maintain chlorine levels Chlorine demand of water too high up start up, after holidays or due to excess contamination or neglect Shock dose with chlorine (see start up dose on product instructions). Repeat after 24 hours if necessary
Cloudy water Poor chemical control or inadequate filtration Clean or replace filter cartridge, check chemical levels using either ClearWater Dip Test Strips or a Bestway Aquatester. Adjust if necessary (chlorine/PH). If problem persists buy a clarifier to remove small particles
Rough pool sides / edges Scale formation due to high calcium levels in water Ensure PH levels are correct using ClearWater Dip Test Strips or aBestway Aquatester and use a pool scale inhibitor to stop calcium precipitating out of water
No colour change on test strip dip test Too high chlorine leading to bleaching of indicator pads (over 15ppm chlorine) Check expiry date on ClearWater Dip Test Strips. Wait for chlorine level to drop and re-test
Foaming Detergent present from incorrect cleaning products or excessive algaecide use Reduce water level and top up with fresh water. Avoid domestic household cleaners.You can also use Clearwater Foam Remover if the problem persists.
