    Need some help please

    Fighting a cloudy pool I can't seem to get clear like it needs to be. I can see bottom of shallow end but not really bottom of deep end @ 8ft.

    Numbers are:

    FC: 5.5
    cc: 0
    CYA: 80
    ALkalinity: 140
    pH: 7.2

    Suggesstions appreciated.

    You are going to need to complete the SLAM process. You are probably fighting off an algae bloom and you have just enough chlorine to prevent it from going green but not enough to kill the algae. Do you have a saltwater chlorine generator? If not your CYA is too high and should be lowered to around 30ppm before you start the slam.
