bustedprius: 1.) Bleach (sanitizing) 2.) Borax (raising pH) 3.) Muriatic Acid 31% (lowering pH) 4.) Baking Soda (raising alkalinity) 5.) Soda Ash (lowering alkalinity) 6.) Filtering Media (DE, sand, cartridges, etc...) Those are the only additives you need to buy for your pool. Anything else is just snake oil. Almost all of these additives can be bought at the grocery store, although I recommend a pool store for the muriatic acid only, and a bulk grocery store for the rest(Costco, BJs, etc..). You do NOT need to shock the pool once per week. That's a waste of money, and waste of time. I did not shock my pool all summer, and had absolutely crystal clear water the entire time. The first time I shocked my pool was last weekend to winterize and close the pool. Buy a decent test kit and keep your chlorine, pH, and total alkalinity at the proper levels, and you will NEVER have cloudy water.

jenraider72: i just ordered a 15 oz bag of Purifier and I have a sand filter. I just connected new filter last month but allowed family friend to take off cover with water still on it and everything went into pool. My late husband and I Never did that but friend insisted and I relented. After a month of problems, I finally got water to cloudy blue. See maybe 18-20 inches deep(48 in depth pool/ 18 ft round). Where do you add Purifier with sand filter? Does it go into sand filter itself by removing cover or does it go into skimmer as directions say for DE filters? Does not say on website for product, just says can use with sand filters. Thanks in advance...Jen

Kwame Selby: So is clarifier the same as floc?

avgarcia: If you follow the BBB, you do NOT need to keep shocking your pool and taking swimming days out of your pool and raising your chlorine levels unnecessarily, I haven't shocked my pool the whole summer, and it stays crystal clear with perfect level for less than $25 a month (10,000 gallon pool), and very little work. BBB, Bleach, Baking Soda and Borax, ALL THAT YOU NEED.

BROOKLYNIZED1: Is he in the wild. I swore I seen a panther walk by in the back

BolsaDePiojo: No but it will help get rid of the cloudyness. How big is your pool and what kind of shock are you using and how much? Are you recirculating the pool or do you have it off?

Jack lee: The audio in this video is crap

Jonny B-Side: You went from 3rd level cloudy to 5th level opaque... Where's level four?

penniesfromheavon: the best cure for all of this is A SALTWATER SYSTEM. we run an entire season with ZERO chemicles...our pool is always clean when we open it after winter (just a little cloudy which running the pump overnite fixes that) we simply buy 2 bags of salt 10.00per season. one at the beginning and one in the middle of pool season..and thats it!

Denis Lara: go to troublefreepool . com also, check your CYA. If your CYA is low you chlorine is not lasting long enough.

penniesfromheavon: well I cant always speak for everyone. I just know it has worked for us for four summers now with NO issues. there are ppl who like both.

kamo stainman: flock will not raise chlorine level but will help with cloudly water

BolsaDePiojo: As for the level staying at 0, that's very unusual. Maybe take your water in to be tested at a store? Also sounds like to you need to floc your pool depending on how cloudy it is. Flocing help grabs all the particles and weigh them down so that they are easy to vacuum, but you CAN NOT floc a pool with a sand filter.

Leslie Chow: my water is opaque(brown). it was cloudy and started to clear up then all of a sudden it turned green. we then added alot of shock and within 15 minutes it turned brown.......

MrWhitetailtracker: Saltwater is twice the cost and very corrosive. Over time splashing water out of an above ground and bye ye pool.

ParPoolSpa: @SuperGrant15 - it sounds as if you've got a lot more going on in that water. If the water turned brown, you've got metals - especially iron - in there that has to be treated. I would also suspect that your water balance is out of line. Each condition & problem has to be taken care of simultaneously to treat the overall pool. Have the water professionally tested. Here's where to find more information:

DebbieU1978: my pool is gray/light brownish...can't see the bottom. We have done everything. Shock, clearifyer, algicide, and super chlorinator. Nothing is working. Test strips all look within normal readings. It is an inground pool, 40,000 gallons. Please help..

mraccord92: I just opened my pool a week ago. So far the water is so cloudy I can't see the bottom at all. I have emptied half the pool water and refilled then shocked. I get all the balances worked out and in less than 24 hrs my chlorine levels are gone. No matter how much chlorine I put in within less than a day its gone , but my alkalinity and Ph levels are o.k. I don't know what to do?

girochin007: I know this is a month old, but are you using stabilizer??? If you get your chlorine from a pool store with a halfway competent staff it's usually the first thing they will try to sell you. It slows down the chlorine from dissipating. Also you should be using a floater with chlorine tablets rather than just liquid. The tablets take a few days to dissolve and will add chlorine to the water as it dissipates.

contraz Carino: Very professional video great info

Mario Sommarti: Pity that the voice is not audible enough

kamo stainman: the shock rusted the metals in the water and turned them brown. maybe iron??

DAVID NVICTUS: it would of been awesome if he jumped in the pool at the end. Good video though.

Degerman Productions: It is very strange.... We took it into 2 stores and both gave same results of no chlorine. Will flocking help raise the chlorine?

kamo stainman: check the stabilizer level. sounds like it needs some. no chlorine will cause cloudly h2o

theprofessorH2O: some good information

Degerman Productions: We have a 40,000 gallon pool and we opened it up about a month ago. The water has remained very cloudy and the chlorine has stayed at 0. All the other chemicals are fine but chlorine is the problem. We shock it everyday with a lot of it and nothing is working. Any suggestions?

kamo stainman: pool needs pool stablizer. It comes in powder or liquid from your local pool store. It allows your to maintain a chlorine level. ken

Deke Hoyten: Oh yes, the team of children fix works every time. I use Special Needs kids for an "extra clean"!
