Tested the water yesterday and everything was fine except my CH which came in at 380. I know up to 400 is ok, but still higher than what I usually have it at and the water is definitely cloudy. First time I have encountered any "issue" since having our pool installed last spring.
My water has been crystal clear since we opened it in the beginning of May, even up to last weekend which is when we last went swimming.
We had LOTS of rain this week. I had to drain the pool twice about 2in each time. From what I think I have read though, rain typically does not affect pool water and if anything usually dilutes the chemicals.
I will admit the last time I tested my CH was 5/17 and it was 200. The only thing we added was our Morton's pool salt, but then again, as I said, the water has been clear until this week. Does salt have calcium in it?
Why then is my CH so out of balance all of a sudden? How can I get my crystal clear water back???
TF100 Test Kit....
FC....2.0 ( I have the "boost" on the SWG on rigth now)
the salt level is also very high....4800, but has also been like this for a few weeks.
