I tried to find a similar question but there are so many! I was wondering if it was safe to enter my saltwater pool if the water is still cloudy after a week of no chemicals being put in the pool? A week ago I shocked the pool and before that used an algeacide, after I shocked it I used a clarifier, but its still cloudy…..again its been a week since I put anything in the pool, is it safe to swim in?


Cloudy water does not necissarily indicate water that is unsafe to swim. Make sure that you have an appropriate free chlorine and pH level at multiple places in the pool by testing the water. If there is not proper filtration, you may have pockets of stagnant water that are not being treated, and this could also lead to the cloudy water.
