    Thought I had everything right...

    Hi all,

    I have a 4th of July party coming in 3 hours and opened the solar cover to see a cloudy pool. For the first time in 2 years! What's going on??? There is a slight green tint to the dirt on the bottom as I clean and brush.

    FC 6
    CYA 50
    PH 7.5
    TA 100
    OCLT from last night til l this morning is less than .5

    Numbers are good and have been the same or similar all season what happened all the suddon? Ahhhh 😭

    You want to have a FC level above 10 in order for it to start killing off anything... achieve that and you will be on your way to a clear pool in no time.
    as well as never leave your solar blanket on during the day youre creating a green house.
    Solar covers are meant to keep the heat in not heat your pool.

    PoolBoyQ101,
    Your post is incorrect. Please read more of what we teach. Pay particular attention to the FC/CYA relationship as it is a cornerstone of our philosophy.
