It was clear when we filled it in June, and its been cloudy until today for most of the summer
Switched to walmart bought borax and bleach but struggled with white cloudy water that would settle to the bottom
but constantly get stirred up and seemed to circulate right through the filter and back into the pool.
Shocked pool, added DE to sand filter, adjusted ph with borax and today the pool is finally clear and 81 deg.
Looking forward to starting next season clear and sparkly and keeping it that way !
We were in the pool today quite a bit........... relieved that it was clear
FC dropped below 1, added walmart bleach to bring it back up to 4
I finally feel confident that I can maintain the pool for a season
