I have had cloudy water since the beginning and am just recently getting my chemistry on track. I started with test strips and OTO test but after reading here upgraded to the TF-100 test.
Here lies one of my problems. My test strip and my TF-100 CH test are high (1200). I thought I would stop by the pool store and see about caltreat or something else to lower the CH anything before I drain the pool. They said that in this area odds are my CH isn’t that high and bring in a sample. I took in a sample and they said my CH was 30. I have tested it 3 times and I get the same thing, well over 1,000 each time. One of us is obviously wrong… I think I will go down there with my kit and we can do both again together. Comments?
So, since everything else was in check according to the pool store I thought my sand was the problem and needed to be changed. I have since changed sand and its still cloudy and not improving (2 days).
Problem two: my pool is still cloudy, and today looks a little green maybe.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
FC= 12.5 (high I think because pump is running 24 hrs a day with SWG on)
