Bought the house late November, and the poolman was keeping the chlorine at 10+ppm.
I am trying to keep Cl2 at 4ppm but the pool is staying dirty, as in the filter plugs before I can finish vacuuming, water gets and stays cloudy (even while vacuuming very slowly).
Then when I backwash the filter, and rinse, it often blows quite a bit of silt back in the pool, and never really clears up.
Running, free cl2 and total around 4, CYA 40 to 80, Ph 7.5 ish, TA 100 to 120.
I work 12 hour days, and it sucks to spend 1 1/2 hours, cleaning at the pool, but not getting it clean.
I did a deep (5 min) backwash last night, hopefully it will be clearing up tonight, or I will order the 420 sq/ft Pentair clean and clear, I know that will work.
