I have been reading the forums for over a year, but this is my first ever post. I have been using the TFP method for awhile, but I always seem to be one step behind my pool...probably because I am a too lazy to test every single day, but that's another post.
I SLAMed my pool a couple of days ago, before leaving town for 4 days. This morning there was a dusting of algae on the floor and walls (I am assuming dead).
Using TF-100 kit:
CYA: 40-50 (depending on how you read the black dot)
I vacuumed the pool floor, and as I did the spill over spa turned green and cloudy--it has a return from the main pump.
Here is my question: should my freshly rinsed cartridge (9 psi, same as when it was brand new 13 months ago) be able to filter out all of the algae and dust from the bottom of the pool without making my water cloudy?
