I opened my pool two weeks ago Sunday. I did what was suggested as far as keeping my fc level at shock level(16 or above as much as possible) for the better part of a week with pump running 24/7. All green gone as far as I can tell. Went to the pool store where I buy my chlorine and bought a bottle of floc and followed the directions on the bottle, this was last Sunday(one week into process). Waited two days and still cloudy so back to the pool store I went. They said I needed to raise my ph so I did (was 7.2 now 7.7) ran the pump for 4ish hours and turned it off. Now two more days have gone by and still very cloudy. I know the preferred method is to let the pump run and filter it out but I feel like I'm at a disadvantage in doing this because I have no main drain in the deep end and only one skimmer. I say all this to ask if temp affects the rate in which drop works?
temp - 58 was 52 when I started process
fc - 2.0
cc - .5
ph - 7.7
ta - 90
ch - 140
cya is less than 30, was at 50 when pool was closed in Oct but we got a lot of rain this winter
