This web site is GREAT! I have been reading and learning a lot on this forum. However I have not seen this question asked yet.
When we moved in to the house the pool had high CYA 200ppm and high CH 500ppm.
I drained the pool and refilled with fresh water. Had some cal-hypo, that I had used before, and didn't want to go to waste so I thought I now have low CH so it would be a ok to use Cal-hypo. I Added 16oz of Cal-hypo and now my water is cloudy and has stayed cloudy after 3 days. Is this normal? or what chemical would your recommend to get the cal-hypo to drop out.
FC - 1
Ph - 7.5
CH - 150
CYA - 0
I know I need to rase my CH and have tabs in a floater to start adding CYA, but would like to know what I need to do to fix the problem with the cloudy water.
