Please Please help! Here is what I have going on.
I have a 16 x 32 inground vinyl liner- sand filter and heater. I just bought the house and had the heater installed around a week ago. I hadnt done much in the way of water testing, and the pool heater installer read me the riot act regarding ph- chlorine , all chemical need to be good.... so I got the pool tested and basically had no chlorine, ph was 6.2, 0 alkalinity, hardness was 100. So this past week I put 60 lbs of alkalinity in and got that to where it needed to be, the ph came up along with that. the chlorine also started to register after the alkalinity and ph were normalized. I also had a copper issue, had copper in the pool (because of the low ph and alk) so i put in mineral remover which got the copper to acceptable levels. I have been putting in the chemical (I think calcium chloride, little pellets) to get the hardness above 200 where they recommend it. It has come up to 160 or so. After all of this, the pool was alittle cloudy, shallow end not too bad but deep end more cloudy. So my levels were good and I decided to add a clarifier to clear it up, went to the pool store and even though the bottle said use maybe 2-4 oz they said you cant use too much so put the whole bottle in. Well, now I have a very very cloudy pool, and have been kicking myself for a day. -- Not ever going back to that pool store.
So--- if I put too much clarifier in, if you can put too much in. if that is the reason my pool is cloudy, is there anything I can do to make the pool clear again? Please help!! I have been reading online and have heard everything from bleach to a ton of shoch to flog to pretty much everything.
