Hello, I am a new owner of a 27' 17,000 gallon pool and very little knowledge about pool care. I have been trying to find a solution to my problem by reading these forums, but have had little luck. So I am asking for HELP! Since starting the pool 3 weeks ago, the water has been crystal clear, but my PH has been at 8.4 and my TA at 240. I haven't messed with it much this whole time because we have been working on the deck and haven't been swimming . Ready to swim now, I shocked it 2 days ago and the water became insantly cloudy and has not cleared up. My levels this morning are FC 5, PH 8.4, TA 240, and Stabilizer 30-50. I only have the test stips that came with the pool. Do I need a different tester and what should I do to clear up my cloudy pool problem?
