Hi I have filled my pool with water but the water has a muddy look to it. This is the way the city water looks so we don’t drink it at all is there anything I can do to clear it up?


It may depend on what is causing the "muddy look" to the water. For example, if it is caused by metals such as iron, a sequestering agent may be needed to remove the metal from the water (before adding chlorine). However, most cloudy water from the city tap can be superchlorinated (or shocked) with chlorine in order to clear up the water. It is best to determine what is causing the muddy look and then figure out how to deal directly with the problem.
