Overdosed PoolRx and Swimming Pool Water is Murky Blue
Swimming Pool Water is Murky Blue and Does Not Clarify After I Put PoolRx Unit.
If your swimming pool water is in normal pool chemistry ranges, you have a free chlorine reading and it’s been a few days
since you installed PoolRx, and you are NOT doing a Green pool clean up, but your swimming pool water is still murky blue, you may have over dosed PoolRx.
Double check your water balance and free chlorine before doing anything and make sure your pump and filter are working and running long enough to turn over your water 1.5 times per day. Also, if you added a PoolRx Booster to soon, the Booster minerals won’t have room to dissolve into solution and you will see them settle to the bottom or stick to the scale.
For typical PoolRx overdoses, drain approximately 1-2 feet water out and add fresh water so the excess minerals can dissolve into solution.
If you have any excess blue minerals that stuck to scale, you have three options to follow:
- Lower pH to 6.8 and the scale with the minerals will dissolve off the surface. This is tough on surfaces so be careful
- A more gentle approach that you can still swim comfortably in the water while it’s working and it’s easier on your surfaces. Lower pH to 7.2 or less and Alkalinity to 80 or less. After water is in this range, Use 1 quart of Jacks Magic Blue Stuff per 10,000 gallons. For extreme cases you can 1.5x -2x the dose. Run pump 24 hours and keep water in this range. Within 48-72 hours the undissolved minerals will be off the surface and into solution. Jacks Blue Stuff is a phosphonic acid that will dissolve the minerals off the scale and into solution.
- To completely pull all of our minerals out of the water: Use a product called CuLator, by periodic products. It’s the only product that will physically pull our minerals out of the water. It’s a polymer bag that goes in the skimmer. It will take up to 30 days to pull all of PoolRx minerals out of the water.
