my swimming pool was crystally clear, after a few months without any chemical only keep pump running.
water is getting a bit cloudy and a bit green. the fish in there are swimming ...

The change from clear water to cloudy water is a sure sign some water parameters are starting to degrade. Is your 'swimming pool' a proper koi pond? Does it have some kind of filtration in place? Tongue

Dear Jim,
using swimming pool as koi pond is not recommended. SP only use sand filter the filter the debris, which is not so much. Small particles is very difficult to collect by the pump, so maintenance is needed by putting certain chemical to BIND the small particles into bigger size which easily filter. Chlorine is put to sanitize and avoid the algae problems. Beside that, sand filter must be clean at least 2-3 days depending on your fishes wastes. and it is not feasible.

You may considering additional filtration if you still want to use the SP.
