For the most part, all summer, my pool has been crystal clear (salt system) with well balanced water chemistry except on two occasions. After heavy weekend use, we used our solar cover as we weren't expecting to use it for a couple of days. I typically run the pump/SWG 10 hours per day.
After I a couple of days, I removed the cover and the pool was very cloudy. On the days covered, temp was in the 90s (I'm in the NE). The pool is in direct sunlight all day.
First time, I brought a water sample to a local Leslie's and they sold my Phosophate reducer (I know, big mistake,, I've since bought a Taylor kit) and I ran my pump for 48 hours straight. That actually worked.
This past weekend, the same thing. I tested my levels with my Taylor kit and everything seems fine (Alk is a little high). Salt level is 3000-3100.
I also put my SWG in "Superchlorinate" as per the manual. I didn't run it for the full 24 hours. I ran it for 12 as we plan to use it today. It seemed to help a little bit. I plan to keep the pump running for a few days and I did bump up the chlorination % on the SWG as well from 50%.
My question is why would I get this condition after using the solar cover? Could it be that it's not chlorinating fast enough to conteract the effects of the cover and heat?
Thanks in advance!
