    Slightly cloudy water

    Ok. Had perfect levels. Crystal clear water. But we had to drain and refill the pool due to a non-water issue and refill. (City water). Now, I can't seem to get the water quite right. It's slightly, very slightly, cloudy. Here are my latest test results from today.

    FC 7 (targeting for 6)
    CC less than .5. Water only had the very, very slightest pink tinge when adding reagent.
    TA 70-80
    PH 7.2 (can't seem to get that up)
    CYA 80
    Salt 3500. (I added recommended amount of salt for target of 3200)
    CH 50
    Copper ion 0

    Thoughts? Filter pump has been running continuously for past week to dissolve and circulate everything. Filter changed twice this week.

    Well, that is pretty annoying! It has been a week? Usually tap water clears up in a week. Your numbers are great. Ph is fine between 7.2 and 7.8. The only idea I have is to hold your chlorine a little higher to see if that helps. Maybe 9 or 10 so you can still test PH.
