    Water little bit Cloudy

    Today was the true test for the pool. Had lots of folks adults and kids it was a good time. But as everyone was done the water in the pool seem a bit cloudy and it hasn't been like this before. What causes this and what test should I run to fix it. It isn't so bad that we can't see the bottom of the pool but it's not like it was yesterday.

    Thanks!!

    Please update your signature with you pool info so we don't have to continually ask for it every time you post.

    Also, if you have one of the recommended kits, you need to run a full set of numbers and post them. You more than likely have zero chlorine in the pool.

    For future heavy bather loads, you should bump your FC up 3-5 ppm more than your normal to carry you through the chlorine demand.

    Re: Water little bit Cloudy

    Here are my results:

    Chorline = 5
    PH = 7.8
    CYA = 50
    TA = 70
    CH= 25 --- way low when I tested on Friday I was in the high 200's

    Not sure how to post these scores so I listed out each one

    FC = 8
    CC = 0
    TC =8
    Thanks,

    Don't worry about CH. run. Higher FC level and your filter for a few days and it should clear right up.,

    Thank you Casey. What do you mean higher fc level and your filter should clear it up?

    My chorline was low last night when I tested before going to bed so I added bleach and it appears that is helping as well.

    That's what I mean. If your usual FC is 5, run it at 8 til it clears and run your filter 24/7 until it's clear which should not be long.
