Hi all. I have be a brand new IG gunite pool. We got water in a week ago and I've been brushing and everything to get it ready for swimming. About 3 days ago, we received a ton of rain in the Houston area which turned my water cloudy. To this point, we had no chlorine in the pool due to startup. On day 5 of startup (after 1 big day of rain), I added 10% liquid chlorine "shock" to get FC in the pool and avoid algae. I've maintained numbers with pump running the since startup (with filter cleans) but I can't kick the haze.
Current numbers are:
PH 7.2 (I've walked this down from >8.2 at fill and it likes to rise on me. Trying to keep the PH a little low early on to help me clean off the Wet Edge pebble dust.)
CH 350 (I've walked this up from 50 at fill)
TA 100 (I've walked this down from 310 at fill)
CYA Haven't tests lately. Was at 0. Added a sock in each skimmer with a few pounds on there, but I understand this can take up to a week to register.
There is no discoloration to the pool - simply not clear. It was crystal clear until the rain got after it. Now, I can't even see my drains in the deep end of our 7' pool.
Any thoughts? I want to nip this one quickly before the wife hires a pool guy. Thanks!
