    Clarifier Overdose?

    Had a 12 ounce bottle of clarifier left from last pool season and our pool developed a very slight cloudiness. So i decided i would have my wife put in two ounces when the pool pump comes on the next morning. I come home to find out that she had emptied the bottle down to the 2 ounce mark, meaning she put in 10 ounces of clarifier!!! Now the pool has a nice little yellow tint to it. my levels are as follows:

    PH: 7.4
    CYA: 50

    Could the clarifier overdose have introduced copper into the water?

    If it's the blue stuff, kind of thick, not likely.
