Ok. First let me thank you guys for all the Great info here. We had our pool installed last year, August, and weve been on BBB after week number 2 when I couldn't get FC reading on the Wonderful test stips i bought at Walmart. Did a few internet searches and found this site. Read like crazy to understand the pool and off I went.
Opened the pool on 5/19 to clear water. Adjusted all of my Levels to where they need to be and within a week the Kiddos, and me, where swimming.
I do have a question though and it might be me being Neurotic.
Here are my readings as of last night
FC - 4.5
CC - .5 Barely
PH - 7.5
TA - 120
CH - 100
CYA - 30
Pool Water temp 82
Ok so here is my question
My cc's are .5 or less
I have passed and OCLT test twice
Here is the tricky one
From outside the pool the water appears clear, I can see to the bottom no problem and when the sun hits it it sparkels. I can also see to the bottom on the far end of the pool. Here it comes the Neurotic part. When I Swim in the pool and go under water with a pair of goggles the water looks a little cloudy. I can see to the other side but it has a slight milky white hue to it. It is not Crystal Crystal Clear.
Does this fail the Clear test or not. I dont want the pool to get away from me
I also dont want to shock if I dont have too.
