My pool water was sparkling clear last night, dispite the 4 inches of rain that fell in one day the day before! I tested my water and used the pool calculator. Added bleach, PH increaser, and water hardness increaser. When I added the chemicals, I noticed clouds begin to form in the water that quickly spread. This morning I woke up to cloudy water...about a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being crystal clear.
Is it wrong to add these chemicals all at the same time in my 10ft deep end? note: I don't have a drain, so the deepest part can take longer to circulate.
READINGS NIGHT BEFORE
I added 3.78 quarts of 8% bleach,1 jug (home depot germicidal)
I added about 2 pounds of PH INCREASER
I added 10 pounds of calcium hardness
NEXT MORNING -pump running all night - it's cloudy
I want my chlorine to hold at 5, but am struggling. It wants to be between 2 and three. For instance I have added three jugs this week of 8% bleach and it's still at 3.2.
Thanks... You all have been a good support network! Appreciate it!
