I was pretty sure I had my water in good condition and tested daily with the those paper strips you just dip in and wait 15 seconds. I know its not the best way to really know but gives me enough info as far as clorine and ph are concerned. Last weekend which was hot but not rediculously hot, we had the filter running continually and on Monday the cloudiness started. I ran a backwash and I increased the settings on the chlorinator and threw in more pucks and it continued to get to the point where you could hardly see the main drain. I put in shock and increased the chlorinator settings to high. It took 3 days to battle the cloud and now I have it nice and clear as the week was not to hot and and a bit overcast.
Tonight I saw a little spot of algae on the side and got my scrubber and after scrubbing it and clearing it, I decided to just brush the bottom of the pool and although it looked very clean as I pushed the brush I could see a slight green cloud move a head of the brush,so I tossed in the vacuum and let it run around for a couple of hours.
I guess my question is...is it normal to see that cloudy haze when I brush the bottom of the pool? and how does one keep it away?
