    Cloudy water with good numbers?

    Hi. I still have slightly cloudy water. Have been running pump and changing filter non stop but it's still cloudy. Tried taking FC up and keeping slightly above normal for several days (10), but still cloudy.

    Had very hot, very sunny weekend.

    Latest numbers:
    FC: 6
    CC: 0
    TA: 70
    CYA: *40, BUT I don't think it's all registering yet. When we filled the pool I only had half the amount needed on hand. Had to add rest of it about a week later.
    Salt: 3400

    Can't understand why I can't get it clear. The numbers don't seem (to me) to indicate need for SLAM, but should I do it anyway?

    Try doing an Overnight Chlorine Loss Test to see if there is anything doing on in the pool.
