    Hopefully nearing the end of my first slam

    Pool water is cloudy but not grey or green anymore. This as been about 5 days of work.

    Just vaccumed/brushed/skimmed out the pool

    Test Results

    FC 16
    CC 0.5
    CYA 40
    TA 160
    CH 110
    pH 7.4

    I read it can take a while for the cloudiness to clear...what about my TA? Is that too high or will it come down?

    Only way to bring TA down is with Acid... But... if your PH is stable, no need to mess with it....Mine is at 150 and PH never goes over 7.6

    Ok, yea, I dont want to fool with it! Should it take about a week to clear the cloudiness?

    If you stay up on changing the filters, it should go pretty quick... Once those thing get mucky, your water goes fast..
