    Cloudy after Cal-Hypo

    Im hoping that its normal and that it will clear up again. I was told to sift it into the skimmer and that I did not need to pre mix, even said so on the container.......

    2) The type filter you have = 300lb Sand
    3) IG
    4) If it's IG, vinyl liner

    Yeah, it's temporary.

    A big dose of cal Hypo causes the calcium to precipitate locally but it will even out and be gone by AM. Your prior CH was around 170....correct? What was your most recent pH and TA?

    You are correct. Test pH and adjust (if necessary) when your FC is below 10.

    High FC levels can make the pH read a false high.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
