Ok we bought a house last winter that has an inground pool. Approx. 16000 gallon vinyl liner pool with a filtering system few people know about from a company that used to do business in us called Utopia.. They are back in the US now selling under a different name.
Anyways they are fabric bag type filters that can filter 6,15,30 microns depending on which bags you choose. When we pulled the cover off this spring the water was crystal clear but with leaves and debris on bottom along with a bunch of white fluffly stuff that reminded me of almost like a cotton look. We added water to the pool to bring back to proper level which really made the water a cloudy or opaque.
I did the recommended shock and chlorine dosage from the local store and had the water tested they said that the ph and TA were good and they also told me to add a bottle of enzyme stuff that said open and close, also a bottle of something to take out all metals. And a treatment of algecide. Which I asked why because my pool was not green and they said for preventative.
My water temp is about 56 I have not turned on the heater yet. I have been changing and cleaning the filter bags every other day. I have gotten all debris off the floor and the best I can tell the pool is pretty clean thanks to 4 days of aquabot scrubbing.
I have added a second dose of shock and the filters have been running 24hrs for 7 days and no change to the super cloudy water. I can't see the bottom of the ladder much less the bottom. The pool store says just give it time.. Some of the water got on top of my solar blanket and when it dried it left a white powdery looking trace behind much like a calcium deposit..
Any help would be much appreciated. My test strips still show no free chlorine and I have added supershock treatment twice in two weeks and have 4 chlorine tabs in skimmer and have replaced them as soon as they are gone.. All othe items on strip seem ok..
