I opened my AG 24'x12' pool about a week ago. When I opened it was green. Shocked and vacuumed and water is no longer green but very cloudy. Pool has been cloudy for about 4 days with little to no improvement. Pump/sand filter is running 24/7. Chemistry and what I have tried so far is below in the order I have tried them.
Opening multiport and flushed/cleaned the sand to check for tunneling
Added DE to filter to try and improve filtration
Added Fiber Clear media to filter, psi rose from normal 15 to 25 within a couple of hours resulting in backwash and loss of fiber clear. I have done this 3 times so far.
I shocked yesterday with hth 6 in 1 shock treatment. I don't typically use this but was hoping to increase my CYA with it. My thought process might be totally wrong on that. I have never dealt with a CYA less than 10. Yesterday my FC was 30. I realize I added too much shock powder.
CYA <10 (This was the result before the most recent shock, I do not have a current result)
At this point I am assuming I should continue to keep my water at shock level because of the CC. I am not sure how to increase CYA or if this is contributing to my problem. I am fine with pool owner patience as long as I am seeing improvement. Thanks for your help.
