I've been fighting with this pool from day one.
I have an Intex 15x48 pool that we filled with well water- did bucket test, water did no change color although we DO have sulfur water.
Filled pool before learning about adding chlorine as you go.
Water was grey (from the sulfur)
I have tried eery calculator I can find, followed some suggestions from several places but no one seemd to have the same problem I do.
Pump is 15:Intex 56635EG 1500-Gallon Filter Pump
using 1" trichlor tabs from HTH
Got my levels pretty good and it was suggested I use sink and sweep to help get the"stuff" out that is causing the cloudiness.
The water is crystal clear as long as I let everything settle. Once all the gunk has settled on the bottom (not very thick either) I vacuum the pool and before I know it, cloudiness is coming out of the outlet back into the water.
The pump above is a recent upgrade from the crappy one that came with the pool. Filter is new.
I even bought a "slime bag" and I still get cloudy stuff pushing through it.
Current readings using Taylor kit:
CYA more than 100ppm (water didn't get to where it starts registering on tester tube)
ANY ideas are much appreciated. I'm not a stickler for it being crystal clear I'd just like to get rid of the crud that keeps settling and not getting caught by the filter.
