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.
jonatan Odicio: NEED HELP!
I do the flocking... and the pool comes out clear... I then go to add
chlorine so i place the pump on circulate... that causes the flock that is
in the pipes to get back in the pool and make it cloudy again!!! AAAGGRGHGG
how can i clean the water that is in the pipes before circulating or
filtering the water???????? does backwashing the filter also clean the
residual water in the pipes??? am I circulating the water too much when i
add the flock, making the flock go into the pipes??
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.
Kwame Selby: So is clarifier the same as floc?
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:
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
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
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"!
