    Cloudy water all of a sudden

    Pool has been clear all summer long, but in the last few days starting to look a little cloudy. Just took readings below.

    FC -- 4
    CC -- 0
    PH -- 7.6
    CYA -- 55
    TA -- 90

    I use SWG system and supplement with Liquid Bleach when needed. Tuesday of this week they started construction on 3 lots near my house and now have 3 open lots near my house with dirt piles. I'm not sure if the cloudy / dingy is from the dirt now blowing into the pool or something else. Appreciate any thoughts and feedback.

    No CC, I'd keep doing what you are doing and maybe run the pump a few more hours a day due to the chance it could be dirt blown in.

    Probably dust/dirt unless they're doing a lot of digging. Run OCLT if you're worried.
    FC/CYA ratio is ok for SWG.

    Sorry, had to delete some of previous answer.

    I saw the 55 CYA and "assumed" it was a bleach pool. Seeing you have a SWG (thanks Abigail ) the CYA is low and you should add some to get up closer to 70 or 80 and then add 1 or 2ppm FC.
