    Water won't clear

    I've tried unsuccessfully for about two weeks to clear my water. I'm getting really frustrated at this . I've taken readings this morning. If anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated. My readings are:

    Take a look at the shocking your pool article in Pool School and follow the steps in there.

    Walk us through the steps of what you've done and tell us what equipment you have and what test kit you're using to test with.

    The first thing I see is that the FC is way too low for the CYA of 50. It should be never get lower than 4ppm. Also with a CC of .4 you probably need to shock, but running the OCLT will confirm or deny that.
