Ok history is we had really bad algae about 2 weeks. I shocked and she snapped back in line but never got crystal clear. End of last week we had filter problems so I scoured locally for a sand filter setup and spent 2-3 days setting it up, running plumbing etc. During that time (Friday - Monday) there was no filter running and the water turned very clear. I wouldn't say crystal clear like I see in a lot people's pics but it was the clearest I had seen since we set it up. The filter just got online about 7pm last night and I shut it off at 11pm. It has been running all day so far today (since 8am).
Wife says the water is still a little cloudy but you can see the bottom no problem. Water is not crystal clear though. Test results are below.
FC = 2 (should be 4-6 based on my research)
CC = .5
TC = 2.5
ph = 7 (wife is adding some pH up to get this to the right level)
Total akalinity = 140
Calcium hardness = 150
CYA = 50
Salt = 1440
**We have an Intex SWG but it is not in the system at the moment as I am having "plumbing" issues with it so I simply took it out so I could get the filter running again asap.
Based on this info should I shock again or just raise the Chlorine level up to 4-6 and let it go.
Last question is will this water be safe for the family to use this w/e? (it's been 2 months since they have been able to use the pool )
