    Pool is still cloudy after two weeks of SLAMing. Help!

    It has been over two weeks. My pool is 25k gallons. My equipment is, well, “vintage” for the most part. It came with the house and we’ve been there 10 years now. It’s ALWAYS something! 🤦🏻‍♀️

    Pool is still cloudy after two weeks of SLAMing. Help!

    We had some plumbing issues and the water sat stagnant for a hot and sunny week until we could get the materials needed for the repair. Needless to say the pool was dark green. I slammed the pool for several days. It turned blue, test kit has shown zero combined chlorine for a long time. I...

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    Merged threads - TFP Mod I have been trying to clear the dead algae from my pool for almost three weeks now. This is the second year I have had trouble with a cloudy pool. I never got it clear last summer. I’ve been slamming daily. Chemicals are spot on. I have gone though nearly my entire...

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    My pool is very blue. I have been trying to follow the SLAM process as closely as possible. I think I have a lot of dead algae to filter out.

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    Pool is very blue but cloudy. I had a very green pool about 10 days ago. My test results this morning: FC 12 CC 0 PH 7.2 TA 80 CYA 35 I plan to add more chlorine in a few minutes to get it back to shock level.

    Merged threads. So I bought my pool with the house. It’s 24k gallon inground. We have a Hayward Superpump 1HP. Skimmer and bottom drain lines are 2”. 1 1/2” jet lines. Filter holds 150# of sand.

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    So after researching pool filters a bit, I think my filter is too small for my pool. It’s Hayward sand filter that holds 150# of sand with a 1HP Superpump. I have a 24k gallon pool. I bought the house with the pool….

    I’ll continue to shock. Thank you. I do think it’s improving, but soooo slowly. I may change out to a DE filter next year.

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    This mornings test: FC 12 CC 0 PH 7.2 TA 80 CA 40 CYA 35 I know I need to add calcium… but that shouldn’t effect clarity should it?

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    Pool was very green upon start up and we had a little trouble with the pump system. Everything seems to be running now. I have been shocking the pool quiet often. I’ve gone through roughly 32 gallons of shock. Filter has been running continuously for 9 days. We have a Hayward sand filter with...

    Help! I need new parts for my Hayward super pump

    I have an older Hayward Super Pump. I’m having trouble finding parts with the correct model number. Any suggestions? I need to replace the ceramic shaft seal, housing gasket, and diffuser gasket. Also, any idea how old this pump is? We bought the house with the pool.

    Pump won’t prime

    One of the o-rings I replaced was off just a smidge. Corrected and added a ton of lubricant. Also the outlet was fine, had to replace the cord and plug to the pump. All up and running now. 🙌
