My pool has been crystal clear and balanced...it was great at 8pm last night! It is 12 hours later and the water is cloudy. My chlorine, ph and alkalinity are all in the normal/ideal range. We have had a ton of rain...... 3 inches last night for a total of 12 inches in a month. Can your pool be too full? The water level is past the top of the skimmer. The sand filter does not show that it needs backwashed. How can I just drain a couple of inches of water so that it will be about 3/4 of the way up the skimmer? I have never closed the pool, so dont have a clue. Once the water level is back to normal, will the cloudiness disappear?
