    cloudy water

    Hi, I had a huge algae problem, it finally cleared up and now the water is super cloudy. I had this aqua chem testing kit. ( I will order a better one from here soon as I use these up)
    They suggest I put in a sink and sweep, it says it takes all the old dead particles and drops it to the floor to be swept up.

    My chemicals are as follows:
    TH 250
    TC7
    FC7
    PH 6.5ISH
    TA 120
    CYA 50

    i AM TRYING to switch over to the BBB method and I am not doing a great job yet.
    Does anyone know what I should do now to get the cloudy look out?

    It does take some time. You just have to keep the filter running as much as possible, backwash and sweep. I don't think I would put any more chemicals in the water. Did you happen to do the overnight FC test. I notice your TC and FC are equal which is good but you want to make sure you pass the overnight FC test. Also, your pH needs to come up some, it is low. Try to get it closer to 7.5.
