I'm a first time pool owner and first time posting on this site. The water in my pool seems pretty clear and balanced:
The problem I'm having is that when I brush the pool plaster surface, a white cloud disperses making the clear pool turn cloudy white. After I leave the filter running and give it time the white particles settle and the pool is clear again. Still, the white particles settle again on the bottom of the pool plaster surface awaiting the the next time I brush to disperse and make the pool cloudy again. It seems the particles are so small they aren't getting caught by the filter.
What could those white cloudy particles be? Is it algae even though it is white blending with the plaster surface? Or could it be remnants of calcium from a super shock performed a week earlier with Calcium Hypochlorite powder (Power Powder Plus)? Do I need to shock for a period of time to get rid of them? What should I do? Any advice would be much appreciated.
