I was away for about a week and a half and came home to very cloudy water. There was a couple of storms with heavy rain. I had someone monitoring the water levels only for me. I ran out and checked Chlorine levels and ruled out algae. When chlorine levels were good, I called a friend, went to pool store to buy the same stuff he uses. I tried Fiber Clear filter aid and a clarifier over night. I saw no difference so went for a full set of tests:
FC 7 (I moved my generator up about 10% before I left)
PH 8 (or slightly higher)
Can high PH alone make water that cloudy? If so, once I add the muratic acid to lower, how long before it should clear if running pump 24 x 7?
I know that those chemicals are not necessary and now am considering a floc to speed up. This is the first time since we've owned the pool when we did not have crystal clear water.
