We acquired our pool a month ago, and are learning quickly that pools do need TLC. We discovered we had a brown stain throughout the entire pool, after getting rid of green algae in the corners with Super AlgaeBomb 60 from the pool store. So we bought a TF-100 kit, did AA Tuesday, and the stain almost completely disappeared. The pool was still crystal clear, as it always had been, although FC was around 0. But overnight the water became cloudy, unable to see bottom of pool. We weren't sure if we should SLAM because AA instructions said not to slam for 2 weeks, but we decided algae was worse than stain. We assumed it was algae ready to bloom? So, we brought the FC up to 14 yesterday (CYA had been 40), and it is still at 14 today, but the cloudiness is still there. We ran out of bleach, so we put in the remaining 2 chlorine tablets left over by the previous owners. That's probably why the FC hasn't gone down? What should we do at this point to get rid of the cloudiness? We have 8 lbs. of citric acid, ProTeam Metal Magic and Polyquat 60 coming in the mail. Should we keep putting in chlorine, maybe try and bump the FC up to 16? Thanks so much for any help with this, as we are struggling to keep up with all of these issues.
