    Sparking water to "sorta" cloudy or dingy after heavy rain

    30,000 gal Vinyl- FC-4 CC-0 TA 80 PH 7.8 CYA 60 82 degrees

    Added some acid to get ph down a little- also added 96 ozs of bleach- it's all I had left.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    And you already seem to know that your FC should be higher with 60 CYA.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Storms often blow in organic debris. It can take a little while for the chlorine and the filter to catch up. Raise the FC level to the top of the recommended range and give the filter some time to catch up.
