    I need your guidance

    I have just changed and replumb my AG 15500 gal pool the water was cloudy by the time all the parts had come in. I added all the necessary chemicals and ran the pool overnight. The next morning when I checked my gauge on the filter it had increased by 10. Water is slightly cloudy but had extreme improvement. Should I backwash the pool or let it ride? When is the appropriate time to backwash a pool?

    Backwash when the pressure goes up 20-25% over the clean pressure.

    Welcome to TFP!!

    And if the water is cloudy, you likely need to follow the ShockLevelAndMAINTAIN Process.

    Can you post a full set of test results? "necessary chemicals" is not very helpful

    Please add your pool details to your signature as described HERE as it will help us help you.
