Yesterday we noticed our pool water had become a bit cloudy, but it was certainly not green. Could this be the start of an algae outbreak? We recently had a week long pool party that probably introductory a lot of sweat, sun block, dirt, etc...so maybe that's related?
After testing the water, it turns out there was nearly no FC present, so shocked the pool to about 6.6 over the course of half a day.
Here are my current numbers:
FC = 6.6
PH = 7.8
TA = 120
CYA = 55
I think the numbers look pretty good...right?
This morning the pool seemed more clear, but it was still a bit hazy.
DO I need to shock the pool to get the FC up to 20 (Based on the CYA chart)...or can I just maintain the current levels and see if the cloudiness goes away after a few days?
I assume the kids can still swim in it, correct?
Thanks again for all your help.
