    Thought I had it made.....cloudy water.

    Just my rant. Had the best pool opening, got complacent, and didn't pay close attention to the chlorine levels. Water went from clear to cloudy in 2 days. So basically starting from scratch. Actually, less than scratch, the pool is cloudier than when the cover came off. Oh well, live and learn. Note to self: PAY ATTENTION when opening pool. Amazing how pool water can stay basically clear all winter long with no chlorine, and then go cloudy with chlorine in it, albeit not much chlorine. Also, I hate dichlor, and trichlor........LOWERS pH, and raises CYA way too much. Liquid chlorine is the ONLY way to go.

    Hey, at least you caught it early, should be easy to clear, just jump on it, and hit it hard

    Yeah thanks. Got the pH back in line and shocked with good 'ol Walmart bleach......pump running 24/7. Already notice a difference.
