    Cloudy blue water

    I Slammed my pool. I think I might have done something wrong. After 3 days my clorine is still above 8. The TA is 90 CH is 300 PH is 7.5. My pool is cloudy powder blue. What should I do my Cya is 60.
    I have a 15x35' preformed plaster in ground pool. Hayward sand filter. Approximately 24,000 gal water.

    So, tell us from the beginning, step by step, but I think you need to continue, CYA is high, though

    You need to follow this exactly

    How you tested your pool?
    8,400 gal Intex, 3K GPH pump, 16" sand filter, SWG CG-28669, TF100 test kit, speed stir, K-1766 Taylor salt test.

    If you want to slam the TFP way you need to have a recommended test kit, no shortcuts, read the previous link

    Hi Jess, and welcome to TFP!

    You can't perform a SLAM with that kind of test kit, so you didn't actually do that procedure. You need a FAS/DPD kit to do one of those.
