I've been fighting cloudy water since hooking up my new sand filter and swg. Water was totally green before starting. I've gotten it to an almost clear look but still cloudy on bottom. Took a sample to pool store and of course he wanted to sell me 150.00 worth of fix it stuff and said my chlorine almost was non existent. I added bleach and stabilizer to boost it thinking my swg wasn't keeping up because it was so green to start with Then I just got my T100 test kit today. Tested water my chlorine level must be off the charts because I did the chlorine drop test and 40 drops in it was still a purplish pink. And I did the one in the basic test kit, the ph looked normal 7.5 but again the chlorine didn't even match the color on the kit. The colors on the kit are greenish yellow , my sample is almost orange.
And my alkalinity test is off too, says it should turn red it's more like a light yellow. My cya is 65 . Any idea where I'm going wrong ???
