    Need Help with Cloudy Water....

    Have had two perfect seasons of a troublefreepool! However, we installed a SWG in the spring and the water is a little cloudy. The kids are here for the summer (probably some added goodies LOL). I added an entire container of CYA and the number only went up 15 points.

    Any suggestions to get my crystal clear water back? I don't dare walk into the pool store haha. Thank you in advance!

    Before I tell you to SLAM, have you added anything lately or is this the way it was when you opened it?

    It has been beautiful since opening it in April. I added CYA then as it was really low at 20. I switched out all of the DE for new fresh stuff. We vacuum every day. I was there this am and its clear and blue but cloudy in the deep end.
