    Safe to Swim / cloudy

    Good day all,

    My pool is almost crystal clear. Still a little cloudy with goggles on but the deep end is visible from up above.
    Cholrine is a little high but we've had a lot of rain lately.
    I've also been using DE to help with the cloudiness but we are on week 2 of the clean and still cloudy.

    TC 15
    CYA 60
    TA 90
    PH 7.2
    CA 230

    Is it ok to swim when its cloudy? And will I ever win this battle?

    please help.

    thank you

    Can you see the drain from the deck?
    Is the water greenish, or just white/grey?
    What is the CC level?
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    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!
