This is my first post on this forum & I'm so so thankful to be able to ask questions here!
I uncovered a very green pool about 5 weeks ago & used the BBB method to kill all the bad stuff & clear it up. I THOUGHT I was all set for the season until I got in the pool for the first time Sunday. Swimming underwater with a mask on the water is still quite hazy - & no, my mask wasn't foggy! Although from the top I can see clearly to the bottom, with a mask underwater, it's hard to see from one end of the pool to the other. I'm missing that crystal clear quality that I've had in the past & don't know how to get it back!
Here's my latest numbers & other info that might be helpful:
FC - 4
CC - 0
pH - 7.5
TA - 80
CYA - 40
Temp's been rising a degree or so a day & is around 80 now
I cut a pair of white tights to use as a skimmer sock a few weeks ago. It still get pretty dirty every day - haven't used one before, so I didn't know if this was common or an indication of how much still needs to be cleared from the water.
Had been running the filter 24/7 for a couple of weeks while I was shocking, but now run around 10 hours a day.
Not sure if I just quit shocking too soon or missed something else along the way. I've seen photos on PF of pools similar to mine & it took a lot less time to get that crystal clear water I'm wanting. What do I need to do to get there?
Please help. We have a pool party next weekend & I know the pool can look better.
Any help is much appreciated,
