I have always maintained my pool with the BBB method, but after draining/refilling my pool to correct a leak in the main drain, i'm now seeing cloudy water. My numbers are:
PH above 8, but lowering
For my CH, I used a different product than I normally use. I used Excel 50 Calcium Chloride. The SDS defines it as 94% calcium chloride, 5% sodium chloride, .02% magnesium chloride, and .20%other. With a fresh fill, poolcalculater called for 141lbs of CH. I added a little over 100lbs and tested, but my sample immediately turns blue, so i'm not sure how to measure. When first filled, everything added, my numbers seemed to be inline. Originally I got 2.5FC; 7.8PH; 70TA; CH350; CYA35. But after a week of filtering off/on, i'm now seeing this cloudiness with a white dust on my pebble plaster and the numbers above. Any suggestions?
