I recently went on vacation for a couple weeks and came back to a green swamp. Before I left, I had been using chlorine and pristine blue from the pool store. After searching for a better alternative, I came accross this site and learned as much as I could.
I started SLAMing my pool about a week ago, and after a few days and A LOT of bleach, I was able to get the pool to a beautiful blue, but still cloudy.
The problem is, that for the last 3 or 4 days, the pool seems that it has not cleared any. I have been checking each day and keeping the FC at shock level, but it doesn't seem to be getting any clearer. How long should this process take?
I have an 11,700 gallon round pool with a cartridge filter.
I have been keeping an eye on the pressure on my filter and it hasn't increased any. Could something be wrong with my filter? It seems to be intact except for a little of the rubber on top of the filter.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
