    Re: Chloriation but cloudy water

    When did the cloudiness show up ??
    What is your CYA level and have you been maintaining that FC level or has it been dropping lower in the past few days preceding the cloudiness ??
    Have you tested for CC (combined chlorine) ??
    How long do you run your pump/filter per day ??

    cloudiness showed up immediately after broadcasting 1 lb granular chlorine, CYA 40, has dropped a bit due 8 days of showers 9about an hour each day), have not tested CC, filter runs 10.5 hrs a day. (8:30 - 7 pm)
