I'm usually a lurker on the forums, always able to find answers to my questions. Been using this method of pool maintenance for almost 8 years after experiencing total frustration over pool maintenance, hence the name "Mood Pool" - that's what my kids started to call it. What's Mom's mood today? Look at the pool! Since I've stopped using pool chems, my mood about my pool is always good
Near the end of last swim season I noticed my pool wasn't clearing like I want. We vacuum, balance, backwash as needed, but no more crystal clear water. My pool chlorine and ph have been "right" for a long time, so I assumed it was a dirty filter. We used a Zeolite filter cleaner last fall before closing.
We opened last week did the opening SLAM as it's now called, and it all tests well. I usually don't worry about ALK (high but ph never climbs) or CAL (vinyl) But I started wondering about calcium precipitate. I ordered new ALK and CAL testing which just came in the mail. My pool is blue but cloudy.
I'd appreciate your input:
