    Just to be certain, your TA isn't 8, but 80 right? What kind of test kit are you using? Also, out of curiosity, can you post a CH?

    Yep, anytime someone mentions cloudy, we wanna see a CH#.

    Looks like you have completed two of the three steps to be done shocking.

    Keep shocking until the pool is clear, but lower your pH first. See red info in my sig.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
