    balanced and shocking, but milky

    Hi,

    Since opening i've not been able to get the murky milky looking stuff gone. Everything is at proper values, except FC which i've been keeping high at the shock level for about a week. What else could it be?

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    This is from the last pool store test. I have since added two bags of baking soda, and have been keeping the chlorine at 22+

    It can take several days for cloudy water to clear up. Keep running your filter 24/7, backwash/clean as necessary, brush as often as you can and keep your FC up.

    I can see the bottom in the shallow end. Hoorah. Must have just been particularly stubborn. Hopefully it will be ready by the weekend.
