    Cloudy dingy looking water

    Hey all it's been a while since I've posted a question but I'm having some water clarity issues. For the whole summer so far I've been having issues with water clarity after heavy swimmer loads. The water gets a dirty look to it. In the previous years it seemed like we could have 10+ People in the pool all day then flip the light on at night and the pool was still clear. Today I had about 10 kids in the pool for less than 2 hours and the water was mucked up that quick. I've cleaned my carts several times this summer and my pressure is normal. The pool has been on a steady diet of bleach and acid for the last 2 years or so with great results. I purchased and installed new filters today to replace the original filters that are 5 years old. I'm hoping this will take care of the issues but am reaching out to see if you guys have any input.

    Are you boosting your FC level up before all the kids come over ? That's a pretty big bather load. I would be dumping some bleach in there to boost up the FC before they come over.
    Cloudy water is a lot of the time a water chemistry problem. FC levels getting below min level.
    How long does it take to clear back up or isn't it clearing up ? 😎

    It cleared up in about 2 hours of running with the new filters. I normally do pump up the chlorine before we have people in the pool. Saturday was my sons bday party and the water performed much better but still had a bit of murkiness to it. I guess maybe its a combination of filtering and the chlorine getting used up.
