my pool water was perfectly clear and balanced, when i did my weekly dose of shock i noticed that we had a bag of shock sitting outside, the pack was opened on the end, and you could tell the package was faded by the sun, but i thought to myself “pool chemicals are expensive, i’ll just use this bag, while i can”
so i added that old bag of shock to my pool, and immediately after adding it my pool water was cloudy around the area i added the shock, within about an hour, the whole pool turned cloudy!!! i dont know what to do, its only been a couple of hours since i added it but i have no clue why it would turn cloudy like that. i tested the water a couple of hours after, and the levels are all good, except chlorine, which is VERY high (as you would expect after shocking it).
anyone here know what i should do??
Usually if a pool goes cloudy immediately after adding shock, the culprit is a high organic load. That pool desperately needed the sanitizer. The cloudiness is actually gas bubbles formed as the chlorine goes to work oxidizing a high volume of organics.
If that’s the case, it will resolve itself as the organics complete gassing off.
I rather doubt it was a problem with the opened packet of shock itself.
The other possibility is a reaction with a chemical that you’d previously put in the pool. You don’t mention any , so my money is on the organic load if this is a traditionally chlorinated pool.

Any input on the use of salt disadvantages of chlorine in the pool outdoors?
In the renovation of my pool, I plan to convert the salt chlorine to obtain chemical equilibrium. Suggestions?
Windancer and I will challenge the authority of the generator to the subject of salt, I can see. I think he can cause poor had experience with older (more than 10 years) units. I am working on that too, and yes, they are horrible. It is different now. Windancer is true that you Do not remove the chlorine go salt. You're just recycling talk like that. I have nothing but positive feedback from customers who were spreading salt and pools had been responsible service per week that Salt were reduced my work by half and operating costs of the customer, by half. They consume very little power to operate. The salt used is very cheap. The overall effect on the balance of your water is almost zero, which requires less to keep your pH and TA in check. Save money back. Salt water pools are less people who have problems with bromine, Ozone or chlorine have pucks.You normal otherwise float (salinity is only 1 / 300 that of a man fails, you can hardly taste) you do not need to test salinity, Unlike what Windancer said, all units in these days of self-monitoring and display rate through the cell, temperature and salinity of the water at least, and a hi or lo salt warning.Check Single Aqua Rite is the best there, in my opinion, from a service, reliability and efficiency stand point. Let's http://www.goldlinecontrols.com/AquaRite.aspx in this way. I've never had one of the last 5 years has worked for the company that I sold, were repaired. An annual cleaning of cell is the owner and can do so easily. There is another brand that may play Windancer called Ecomatic. I had problems with these units, ranging from circuit boards fried defective cells. I find the shops that is not their money on the sale of chemicals, usually generators.It Trashy salt profitable for them and they lose their customers.
