  1. I found info that cloudy water can be caused by improper levels of chlorine, imbalanced pH and alkalinity, very high calcium hardness (CH) levels, faulty or clogged filter, early stages of algae, ammonia, and debris. So you can try: 1. Balance free chlorine (FC) levels. If FC is low, you need to shock your swimming pool to fix cloudy water and kill bacteria before you get algae or ammonia in your pool. 2. Eliminate ammonia and get rid of young algae. 3. Monitor and balance pH and TA levels. 4. Correct calcium hardness (CH) levels. 5. Remove foreign particles and mineral deposits, scrub, and vacuum up the pool. Imbalanced chemicals can also cause cloudy water: too much or too little chlorine, or the pH, alkalinity, calcium hardness, or stabilizer (cyanuric acid) levels are imbalanced. Or you can google 'cloudy water in the pool', and find some articles about the causes of cloudy swimming pool water and how to clear it. The environment and weather may also be the cause of cloudy water. To fix and prevent cloudy water you need to remove algae, scrub and clean the pool using a large leaf net and vacuum. Then do a pool shock to get rid of any remaining algae. Here is also important to choose the right vacuum and vacuum head. You can find info about choosing it in some youtube reviews or guides/articles. As an example, I found a buying guide about pool vacuum heads. As far as I can see, it's a review of different types of vacuum heads, its pros, and cons. As for me, I prefer to read peoples' comments about their purchase in the online store. By the way, all info I found in this article: https://dengarden.com/swimming-pools/Cloudy-Swimming-Pool-Water#:~:text=Cloudy or milky swimming pool,algae%2C ammonia%2C and debris. And if shocking and cleaning won't work, you can read it because I wrote some of advices I found. There are more of them. Hope it will help 😉
  2. I'm not a professional and can't give you an absolutely correct answer but maybe it's due to chemical disbalance (bad or old testing strips). or maybe you can try a different kinds of vacuum heads? I had problems with a dirty surface, especially in the corners. I tried different chemicals, asked pool owners, neighbors, and turned out it was because of the bad vacuum head. It wasn't suitable for my type of surface, so I bought a new one with a triangular shape and now it works well enough.
  3. Thanks for your tips. I can add two more: - you can use tennis ball to absorb oils left in the water (lotions, hair products, natural skin oils) - regular baking soda might work as sodium bicarbonate
  4. as for me, it's better to get a swim spa that can be used as a giant hot tub
  5. My parents wanted to get one, and actually still thinking about buying it. The price for Royal Spa with 94x180x50.5 in cabinet size was $19,990.
  6. As far as I know, the lowest price is bout $19.5-20k for a four-season use spa, indoors and outdoors, and a hot-tub version
