I just did an AA treatment and added 1.5 bottles of Ocean Breeze Metal Miracle, pool looks awesome but it is a bit cloudy. I wanted to try the CuLater pack today but wanted to know if I could put a little clarifier in to clear up the pool. I have not started to bring my chlorine up yet. My questions:
1. Will the clarifier affect the CuLater?
2. At what point should I backwash the pump? Last time I did this I did add the clarifier after the pool did not clear up after a couple of days and within hours my psi rose significantly so I back washed, but this is the first time I have tried the CuLater pack.
3. Why is the pool so cloudy after I use the sequestrant? Is it all the metal freely floating around?
4. Has anyone ever heard of metal getting in the pool due to deck runoff? My pool store guy said if the wood is over 5 years old it could have been treated with copper.
Thanks for any help, I have been going in circles all summer with this and do not know where this metal is coming from! I plan on changing the sand in my filter at closing to see if that helps next year. It will be my last effort to try and fix this once and for all!
