I went swimming and the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the bottom of the pool, is this problem?
Yes, not being able to detect distressed or drowning bathers is always a cause for alarm. Additionally, poor water clarity is often a result of poor filtration, poor disinfection, poor water balance, slow turnover rates, and over-saturation of chemical stabilizer. Report this immediately to the pool facility's person in charge, and then call our office. A pool in this condition is required by state law to shut down until this condition is corrected.
