I have a 15' X 4' round Intex pool and seem to be having a serious cloudiness problem I use test strips (hth 6-way test strips) because that is all I can afford at this time. Right now my TA is reading between 180 and 240 and pH is approx. 6.8. For about 2 weeks now, we have been fighting a cloudiness problem. In the morning, after the pump hasn't been running all night, there is patches of cloudy water sitting at the bottom of my pool. I took a sample of water to the local pool store and followed the recommendations that was given to me. A couple of days ago we bought a bigger stronger pump, which I notice circulates the water a LOT better. However, the water is still cloudy and every couple hours I have to go out and clean off the filter because it gets a slight slime build up in it. After doing some research yesterday, I added Muratic Acid (approx. 2 pints) last night. My water is still cloudy and you can actually see little particles floating in the pool. Funds are limited, so any suggestions on what I can do would be greatly appreciated!
