the opening process is coming along. finally got my ph down to 7.2, my shock pretty much held overnight last night (had it at 20, 18 this morning - close enough?) my only problem is this... i got it from dark green to "milky" rather quickly (a couple of days) but it's been at this milky state for a week now and doesn't seem to be clearing. i brushed the entire pool a few days ago and i've had to backwash a couple times a day, so i know the filter is working, but it just won't get any clearer. i was wondering if my problem may be the water level is too high. the instructions that came with the pool said the water level should be at "mid-skimmer". well, with all the rain we been getting here in the midwest, my water level is about an inch from the top of the skimmer. i haven't lowered it yet because i know once i can see the bottom i'll be vacuming to waste and i'll need the extra water. do you think if i lower the water level, it'll filter better and clear faster, or does it really matter?
thanx again for the help.
