I've been fighting SLIGHTLY cloudy water all summer. Everyone said the water looked "clean" and that there is no chlorine smell but I could tell that it wasn't quite right. I have a new pool and I'm new to the forum so I have been reading intently but this is my first post.
Anyway getting back to the SLIGHTLY cloudy water issue... I've brushed and vacuumed and vacuumed and brushed. I'm obsessive about checking my levels, sometimes 3 times a day. I have CYA at 60 ppm and I've been keeping my chlorine around 7-8 ppm. My CC is usually 0 and my overnight loss is about 0.5. Trying everything, I kept running the filter longer and longer about 14-16 hours. The filter pressure never varies much so I thought maybe my sand was channeled. I backwashed a couple of times while cursing and wishing I went with a cartridge filter. Finally, last night in desperation, I added 3 oz of clarifier, brushed the pool down one more time and let the filter run for a couple of hours. Then today all of a sudden when I came home from work … SHAZAM … sparklypoolitis… I’m ecstatic but waz up wit that???
