Pool Chemicals Turn Pool Water Blue Pool water is dyed blue by the chemicals used to keep it healthy. Chlorine is added to pools to keep the water clear. It's also important to point out that salt water pools, which use salt chlorine generators are just as healthy and just as clear as those using traditional chlorine.

Similarly, what do I do if my pool water is cloudy? To get rid of all the gross and dangerous crud in your cloudy pool water, shock your pool. This mega-dose of chlorine (or non-chlorine shock for pools that use other sanitizers) will eliminate cloudiness caused by bacteria, organic contaminants, and algae.

Furthermore, how do I make my pool water look blue?

To see how light behaves at different depths of a swimming pool, submerge a white bucket into a pool just below the surface and note the tint of the water in it. It will be a very light shade of blue, compared to the deeper water around it. The deeper you submerge the bucket, the deeper the color will be.

Can you over shock a pool?

Start off by adding 3 or 4 gallons, and if you see no results overnight, add 3 or 4 more gallons the next day. Continue this process until you notice the water changing color to either cloudy white, light green or clear. YOU CANNOT OVER SHOCK A POOL ! The more you add, the quicker it will clear !
