    Well hey there, Welcome!

    If your CYA is 100, and your FC is 0, you will not have clear water much longer. I suggest you get some bleach in there ASAP, dose according to the CYA chart in my signature, and maintain the minimum, at all times.

    If you are confident that your CYA is really 100, I would consider a partial drain and refill with fresh water to get it down to a more manageable number.

    We can help you keep your water clear, be sure to read all the articles in pool school to start.

    BTW, you can update your signature line to include your pool specs and equipment, that is very helpful for those of us responding to questions. Go to your User Control Panel (top left) and then Profile, and then Edit signature.
