I have a question regarding water cloudiness.
I'm a new pool owner and I was doing a lot of test strips and visiting pool store for chemicals. I finally got my test kit arrive in the mail and I tested my water using the kit
I have a SWG with about salt level at 3200, sand filter with my outdoor in-ground pool with about 30k gallons of water. Usually it's very blue and clear looking, but sometimes it turns a little cloudy after raining. I could see the bottom but its not clear. Generally, the cloudiness cure itself after two three days of filtering. I keep my pump on 24/7 as I'm advise that If I don't run it 24/7 I may have to pay for chemicals down the road and chemicals are not cheap.
My question is: do I have to shock the pool whenever I see cloudiness? or should I let it clear out by itself? Can I enter the pool when its cloudy? Under what conditions will I have to manually shock the pool?
