Had a big bash for my daughters 7th birthday this weekend. There were between 10 - 15 kids in the pool for 4+ hours plus adults. After the party, I noticed the water wasn't quite as clear. I had to add some water due to splash out but otherwise my numbers all looked good. I tested later that day and my numbers were pretty much where they always have been. The next day we also got some more storms and got quite a bit of debris in the water. I cleared out the debris and the water was just about as cloudy as it was after the party.
My numbers were:
FC - 7 (assumed I might need to shock, so I'm bringing up the level up, currently it's 12 via the SWG since I wasn't here to add liquid chlorine today - tell me if I should stop)
CC - 0
TA - 70
pH - 7.6
CYA - 70
I've been running the pump 24/7 since Saturday with one backwash. The filter pressure hasn't really gone up, and the backwash was fairly clean.
Do I shock? Keep running the filter and wait? It's not a rush to get back to sparkly but would like it to return. It just seems theres some sort of pollen like stuff suspended in the water and I'm not sure how to handle that. My cleaner is out so I'm using a borrowed one that only does the bottom of the pool and I've been netting out the floating debris in the pool daily.
Any other suggestions?
