There are several common causes of cloudy water. Although proper water balance can be an obvious culprit (lack of chlorine, inadequate pH and/or Total Alkalinity levels, low calcium levels to name a few), most cloudy issues stem from poor or improper circulation and/or filtration.
You should always start with adjusting the run-time for your filter when addressing a cloudy condition, and confirm that the filter is clean and operating at optimal capacity and efficiency. In some instances, cloudy water could be the first indicators of a looming algae outbreak; so applying an effective shock treatment could be a good first-step toward corrective action.
