So we put up the pool for the season last week or so. Since than I have been trying to get the pool water clear. It is cloudy. I was just reading and I am thinking it may be because the CYA is at 0 when I test it. So I saw someone mention to someone else that has the same size pool (15 x 48) to put 8 oz dichor in everyday for five days. I am using the HTH balance. But can I do it more than once a day to speed up the process?
Also I notice the chlorine level is not staying overnight can this be one of the reasons?
So after five days if my CYA is up to normal levels should the pool water be clear or will I need to do something else? I have also been adding one pound of baking soda everyday for the last few days, should I stop that for now?
Edited to add:
I have the HTH test strips. Here are the results from what I just tested.
TA I can't tell it does not match any of the colors, it is blue
CYA 30 - 50
I am in central Utah. No salt water thing. It is the 15 x 48 pool, I don't know what the gallons are.
