Last year my pool seemed to be permanently cloudy, even though the water quality appeared to be okay when it was tested. When I brushed the sides of the pool with my hand, I saw a white dusty residue come from the walls. Somebody told me that the paint https://greenyardmaster.com/best-pool-paint/ was breaking down and it was time to repaint the pool.
So in January I drained the pool. Got out my pressure washer and scraper and stripped all the old paint and repainted it with epoxy pool paint. The same as the original colour, white. I followed the instructions to the letter. I even painted it at night time so that I wouldn't get the paint blisters that you get with epoxy paint and the hot climate.
Eleven months later, I have exactly the same problem. The chlorine content is spot on, the ph is right. It has been flocked, brushed vacuumed, I've changed the filter sand, added pool blue. No matter what, I cannot get rid of this cloudy suspension. When I brush the sides of the walls with my hand, I get this milky residue again.
One of the conclusions I have come to is that maybe the cement is leaching through the paint. I am now considering tiling the pool, but this will be costly. The square meter-age of my pool is 101 sqm.
Does anyone have any ideas?
