I had an algae and high CYA levels and apparently the previous owner never drained the pool for 15 years, so I bought a pump at HF, completely drained the pool, and scrubbed the sides with bleach. Refilled and now the pool is blue, but very cloudy. This cloudiness occurred after backwashing for 5 minutes last night and running the pool pump for about 18 hours. I added 3.5 gallons of bleach through the refilling process and 6 cups of granular CYA to a sock and placed it in the skimmer basket (4 overnight, 2 this morning).
Here are my levels currently.
CH: 250 - 300
I am using the TF1000 chemistry kit. For the CYA, the black dot never completely disappeared, but it did get cloudy once I filled it to the top. I understand it could take up to a week for the CYA to level out. I have not reinstalled the vacuum yet as I have some clean up with that since it was sitting in algae.
So what could be causing this cloudiness and how do I clear it up?
