: Well..we are closing our new pool for the first time. Never done this before. We installed the pool and filled momorial day and it has been crystal clear ever since using The BBB method. I stopped by the pool store for the first time yesterday and asked what I need to close the pool and sold me a kit with shock and algaecide (bioguard winter kit). I followed the directions and when I added it to the pool it turned cloudy. I got a little nervous.... Why would it turn cloudy? Is it normal?
I also have to add... I have never shocked the pool...ever. My levels were always good and was clear.
My test readings before adding shock and algaecide
Free C.= 3
C,C - 0.5
PH. - 7.5
TA - 110
I'm going to leave the pump on all night... Should I be doing something?
