Pool company just completed an "acid bath" on the pool to remove plaster blooms on a dark grey finish. They returned on Monday and jumped soda ash into the pool to raise the pH level...how much I don't know. Now the water is cloudy. On the first day it looked like skim milk. I tested the pool water and the calcium hardness is up to 400 ppm. I turned on all our equipment (finish company was using a temporary pump to avoid damage to our equipment), and the water is still cloudy after 24 hours of circulation. So here's my question...did the soda ash cause the cloudy water or is it from the high calcium levels? We were told to keep the CH at 250. How do I lower the CH? Or will it start to even out?
Thanks for any input on this!
