    I have been going through the process of shocking my cloudy pool all day. It looks better and seems to be holding a high FC level but is still not clear. I just checked and it's still at the shock level so do I just check first thing in the morning and get it back to shock level and go all day again?

    Every couple hours until it clears, the CC is .5 or less, and the overnight loss is 1 or less. Just keep going.

    It didn't get green and cloudy overnight, it won't clear that fast, either.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
