First of all, I would like to thank of you who gave me guidance and direction last year when I bought a new house with a pool (and had no idea what I was doing).
Since then, I've enjoyed crystal clear water and limited issues thanks to a solid testing kit, liquid bleach, and the SLAM method.
This is the first time I've experience some haziness in the water, and by haziness I mean that I can see the bottom of the shallow end but not the 8 ft. deep end. The weird thing is that my water seems to be relatively in balance. Today's tests:
I'm wondering - is it possible for some environmental factors to cause the haziness? We had quite a bit of rain this past Monday and some Tuesday, and I also left the solar cover on for a a day or two without removing it (this is a no-no?) We also had a party this past Sunday and there were 6-7 people in and out of the pool all day.
I ran the filter (sand filter) all night last night (approx. 10 hours) and I didn't notice any major improvements. I also backwashed this morning. I plan to run it again overnight tonight to see if it helps.
Could just be paranoid and need to give it more filter time but, time to slam?
Thanks again - I've only posted a couple times but I'm a long-time lurker.
