    Pool is still cloudy

    At the suggestion of a local pool store, I pumped in 3 5-gallon liquid chlorine into my salt water pool and still after 24 hrs running filter, pool is still cloudy. It seems as though the jets are pumping cloudy water back in. Water is clean and was tested. HELP!!!!!!

    Welcome to TFP!

    Could you post a full set of water test results? There are many different possibilities. Test results will narrow it down a great deal.

    Its possible that your salt cell need acid wash or cleaning. When they get full of scale they just pump it back into the pool. Often you will see white on the bottom below the returns? And as noted what are your numbers?
