New to the forum, - looks like a great place, to learn about pool chemistry: Just ordered my TF-100 Test Kit XL 5 minutes ago, tired of using strips, and Leslie's pool supply.
My current situation on my pool is clear in the shallow end, and cloudy in the deep end, we opened the pool on May 1st, and by May 4th - I had very, very crystal clear water - upon taking my water to Leslie;s to get tested - it was at very low Ph, and Alkalinity- so, 35 pounds of Alk +, and 9 pounds of Soda Ash later - my deep end turned "cloudy".
FC was 10+
Total Available Chlorine = 10+
*** I used 4 bottles of 192ounces of Clorox to shoch, in hope to clear the water....
ALK = 150
CYA = 40
Calcium Hardness = 100
TDS = 500
copper = 1
We are leaving for vacation for a few days, and when I return I am going to drain some of the water from the pool, and not use my "well" water as fill - I will use my city's water...
After about 8 years of owning my pool - free form 30,000 gallons, this is the 1st time this "cloudy" episode had happened....
