    Water cloudy

    Hey guys!

    Ok, pool is all vaccumed out, filter's been running 24/7 for almost a week now and water is still on the slightly cloudy side.

    CYA is at 40ish (prefer 50)
    ph 7.5
    TA 110
    CL- not sure, it was dark yellow,(just did the quickie test and not the full out one) and I added 172 oz bleach tonite.

    Should I continue to vaccum- even though all debris is out of the pool(there was A LOT pinestraw,pollen)

    So I am assuming add more bleach and keep it at shock level about 16 for a few days??? and until my CC read .5 or less? I hope I don't have to add any clarifier.

    Hi, Laura,

    Have you backwashed? Did you get a pressure drop? what is your current pressure?

    It sounds like your filter is a little small for your pool but, yes, keep your FC up until your water is sparkling. A week is a little long for it not to clear. Tell us some more about your filter and pump

    Have you done an overnight test? Is your FC holding.... I agree with Dave - some more info on your pump. There's an article in pool school/further reading about adding DE to your sand to help with filtration...you could try that if nothing else seems to work.
