                                       The Colored Water Problem

Problem:  Colored Water

Colored Water (clear green/brown/yellow tint with no algae) has generally two causes - dissolved metals or a high organic content in the water.  Follow these steps for sparkling clear water:

  1. Take a sample of the water to your authorized POOLIFE Dealer for a full analysis.
  2. If metals are detected, add POOLIFE Sequestering Agent (Metal Control) per label directions.
  3. If a high organic content is suspected, shock the pool with POOLIFE TurboShock or POOLIFE Rapid Shock per label directions.  Remember to wait until the free chlorine level has dropped to between 1 - 4 ppm before reentering the pool.
