    Cloudy water

    Noticed this morning my pool was cloudy. 9í deep and could barely see the bottom drain.

    Results from last test on Saturday (5/5)
    FC 2.5
    pH 7.6
    TA 90
    CH 300
    CYA 40

    Tested FC on Wednesday and was down to .5 so decided to add enough to bump up to 8 as we are having a lot of swimming this weekend. Noticed pool got cloudy. Maybe thatís normal, but just curious.

    Thanks,

    Re: Cloudy water

    Sounds like your water got stressed from the low FC and it on the verge of a SLAM. It's definitely time to bump that FC to at least 10. With that CYA of 40, 10 is only half the SLAM level anyways - perfectly safe. Run it that way through this evening and through the weekend. If you let it fall a little for the visitors it won't matter a whole lot. But when Sunday gets here and all the swimming is done, I'd do an overnight (OCLT) test to see if you need to SLAM.
