9 days ago i had clear water but my FC was basically 0. I had a little algae forming so i shocked my pool that night with super shock (68% calcium hypochlorite). The water was very cloudy the next day. I has been slowly getting better but you can still barely see the bottom of the deep end. I don't see any signs of algae. It's been 9 days and i have been filering constantly and backwashing daily. I ordered the tf 100 test kit and here are my levels:
CYA = 60, FC = 3.5, CC = 0.5, TC = 4.0, Total Alk - 200, and ph = 7.2 - 7.4
I know my Total Alk is high but everything else seems reasonable. How do i lower my Total Alk? Does this have anyting to do with my cloudy water? Any help is very much appreciated.
