    Cloudy Water Post Shocking

    About a week ago, we had a very bad storm and my pool turned green because of it. I read in my booklet that came with the pool test kit that to treat the problem, I needed to add 30 ppm FC all at once. I did that, and now my water is cloudy. How can I get it to not be cloudy? I did the algae treatment 3 days ago, and slowly the system is filtering out the cloudiness, but I was hoping I could get it to go faster.

    Please add your pool details to your signature as described HERE as it will help us help you.

    What test kit are you using?

    Well, I hope your pool is not vinyl with low CYA as raising that FC that high would likely cause damage.

    We teach to follow the ShockLevelAndMAINTAIN Process when there is a problem in the pool.
