I have a pool service that treats our pool every Wednesday. For some time now, the water is crystal clear until he adds chlorine (muriatic) on Wednesday AM. Then, almost immediately, the water becomes very cloudy. By about 24-36 hours after that, it's completely cleared again and will remain so until his next service.
Below is a sample analysis done by Pinch-A-Penny taken the day before the recent pool service:
Total chlorine: 3.0 ppm
Free chlorine: 3.0 ppm
Combined chlorine: 0.0 ppm
Total alkalinity: 100 ppm
Calcium hardness: 250 ppm
Stabilizer: 50 ppm
Total dissolved solids: 3,000 ppm
Adj. Alkalinity: 83
-- Is the cloudiness normal?
-- What is the chemistry that's causing the cloudiness?
-- Is it any cause for concern (aside from aesthetics)? And if so, what should be done about it?
Thank you ....
