I'm at my wits end trying to get our pool water clear.
Here are my stats:
16' x 32' in-ground pool, depth 3' - 7' (I'm guessing the average is 5').
We have had the pool for 10 years, not sure how old it is as it came with the house.
Never had an issue with the water clarity in the past.
Last year we could not open the pool due to many family issues. I was really eager to get the pool opened this year for some fun and relaxation but its now the end of July and he have not been able to swim yet. Last year we had a cheap winter cover that failed and many leaves got into the pool.
We have been able to remove all the leaves with a leaf net and have tried vacuuming the pool but it is difficult as we cannot see the bottom.
The water is milky colored and we can't see much deeper than the 3rd step.
We have been having our chemicals tested professionally by a local company and they are not sure why we cannot get clarity either.
We have shocked the water many, many times, run our chlorine feeder on full, used special chemicals to help get clarity, even changed our filter media to something called zeosand (did that yesterday) and still no change at all.
This one really has me pulling out what little hair I have left.
We will be having our chemicals tested again tomorrow, and can post the results then.
What could be going on? Why can't we get our water to be clear?
