I have had a pool for most of my adult life and have cared for it myself because I'm very picky about my water. I have a 32,000 gallon pool with a salt chlorinator.
I returned from a 10 day vacation in June to a chlorine demand and decided it was easier to drain the pool then try to balance it. I have never had a chlorine demand in my life and wasn't exactly sure they existed (I do now).
It seems like my pool is in another chlorine demand! Is this normal or am I missing something in the care of my pool? PH is 7.4, CYA is 50, but I'm using test strips since my son knocked over my regular test kit and stepped on it, so those are probably not accurate.
I ran the filter for the last 24 hours after adding a huge amount of chlorine but even though my pool is now maintaining the chlorine level it is still cloudy? Any suggestions?
I'm pretty much done with this pool this summer, fall can't come soon enough!!!
