I have a 25,000 gal inground vinyl liner pool that I use baquacil on. I opened it and cleaned it and added my usual oxidizer and algaecide and it cleared up to blue but still hazy. Pool supply store recommended I floc as I have done in the past with great but aggravating success. This time it worked slightly. Took a sample they recommended floc again and said PH was a little low and calcium was 0 and said to correct that before floc treatment. Calcium was at 0 so I needed alot. But I only added 15lbs. Then I added 4lbs PH up. Well, I now have beautiful milky water and I am afraid to do anything else. I am considering draining it halfway or doing the floc again. I read somewhere that you shouldn't add Calcium and PH increase except hours apart. Wish the pool supply store would have told me this. I am sick over this and I wish I would have left it alone. I cannot find an answer anywhere. All chemical readings are normal. Clarity is 0. Should I floc it again or drain it halfway and refill?? Please help!!!!
