I was hoping for some suggestions with clearing up my water. Ever since I backwashed my pool(Wednesday) it has had a slight cloudiness to it. I think the main problem came from my filter being completely clogged when I took control of the pool that monday. The PSI on the tank was 35, its normal running psi at high rate is around 10, I discovered this after flushing it the first time. I had to flush the filter twice that day because pressure built back up; I believe that was due to gunk in the lines that was finally freed up after the backwash. I havenít had to flush the filter in the last 3-4 days, though it was getting close last night.
Anyway, Iíve had the pool for a week, levels have been great, been swimming lots. The water is rather clear, but just has the slight cloud to it that I donít see if others posts here, you could say it has a ďdullĒ look to it. Could this be to the new plaster? Do I just have a ton of contamination floating around? Iím considering picking up some D.E. to give the sand filter a boost, but Iíve read that increasing FC for a few days may help as well. Not shock level but just higher than the target.
Here are my numbers.
CYA: 25 (Added enough CYA to bring this to 35-40, still dialing in pool volume so I didnít want to overshoot, will retest next week to see where Iím at)
FC: 5 (FC held at 5 from last night to this morning, so I donít have Allege)
CC: 0 (Been 0 for majority of the last week, once or twice it spiked to .5)
