My 1500 gal intex easy set pool was really green so last night I put an algaecide in it and a Gallon of liquid chlorine in it. This morning it was really cloudy so I put a clarified in the pool. Why is it so cloudy and did I put too much chlorine and how long do I have to wait to swim???


The cloudiness can be caused by a number of things, but it may be as simple as the algae (green) was destroyed and is not causing the cloudiness and takes some time to be filtered out (maybe 24 to 48 hours). It can also be related to the pH if that is not in balance. As far as swimming, check the chlorine, if it is in the "ok" range you should be safe to swim.
