    Need help balancing water after replaster

    Hi,

    I was trying to get my water balanced now that I have the plaster dust gone. I turned on my chlorinator last night and this morning my water went from clear to a cloudy blue. My test readings are as follows:

    PH 7.2-7.4
    CH 350
    TA 130
    CYA 0
    25k gal inground pool, concrete, Filter Jandy Dev48, Anthony pool pump

    What is your FC and CC? Cloudy water is the first sign of algae growing in your pool. 0 cya is not helping because the sun will burn off the chlorine quickly. You can do an Overnight Chlorine Loss Test to check for some algae growing. You are going to need to SLAM the pool to kill the algae.

    Do you have one of these test kits? Pool School - Test Kits Compared I use the TF-100 because it is a better value.

    Thanks for the reply. My FC and Cc both were 0. I thought it wasn't a good idea to slam a pool that has just been replastered. Can I add liquid chlorine to the pool now without damaging the plaster?
