The pool was beautiful untill last week......then we made some hoops for the kids to swim through. We didn't notice until too late (say an hour or so) that the hoops that had had some silicone put in them for waterrpoofing were leaching silicone into the pool (so proud of my son for noticing and pulling them out of the pool!).
The water has a slight haze to it. Not bad cloudy but not the beautiful that it had been all summer.
I shocked the pool and kept the FC level at 14 for a few days. My CC never moved.
I put a sock (with an knee high inside it) over the outflow and I've been running the filter non-shop since and have backwashed once.
Is it just going to take time? Geez - I'm such an idot!
