Hello! I'm new here and need help.
We have 26,000 gallon pool. Salt water system. Our water is cloudy. We've been through the ringer this year. Our salt cell died and we didn't know - so we kept dumping salt in the pool. We've dropped the water 18 inches and filled it with fresh water. Replaced our cartridge filters a week ago. We have a polaris pool vac and are running it with our filters 24/7 to get the water correct. We've been taking the water to get tested at Leslies Pool Supply and all appears ok now (tested last night) he said the phosphates were a bit high but I needed to get it clear before I worried about anything else.
I've bought two types of clarifier and followed the instructions both times. Last night at 7pm I used the "best" stuff Leslie's had and hoped to see some improvement this morning. I didn't.
So to date:
-Replaced Salt Cell a week ago
-Replaced Cartridge Filters a week ago
-Water tests ok
-Salt is measuring at 3500 right now
-Used clarifier last night
We have a party on Sunday. When we planned it we had no idea it would take this long to clear the water up. Its been one problem after another. I know we are missing something I just don't know what.
You can see the second step in the shallow end and that is it.
