    Cloudy pool after heavy use

    I'm trying to figure out how to prevent my pool from getting very cloudy after a weekend of heavy use.
    We have a pool in our campground that receives very heavy use on the weekend and despite my being able to keep the chemicals pretty much in line it gets very cloudy by Saturday afternoon.
    Is there anything I can do to prevent this or to clear it quicker.?

    Heavy use equals heavy chlorine consumption, and your chlorine is way too low for such a high CYA level. I'd try running the chlorine at 10ppm, and checking it several times a day during the heavy use periods.
