It has rained pretty hard for the last couple days and has been cloudy for three days. I have switched over to the BBB method and have actually found it pretty simple and keeps me on my toes on what my pool chem needs are. The problem I am having now is I can get crystal clear water. The water looks slightly murky and distorted and can barely see the main drain 8 feet down. The shallow end looks much clearer though. I leave my pump running 24 hours a day. Here are my pool chem levels:
Total Cl = 4.0 (Not sure of CC) but pool only had slight chlorine smell.
pH = 7.5
TA = 110
Hardness = 225
CYA = Not sure what to use. Pool place tested it at 50. My tester comes out at 32-35
Temp = 70
I have shocked it once before with no clearing of water. I just shocked again using 5 and half gallons of 6% liquid bleach based on a CYA of 50 to raise my shock level to around 16 ppm. I am using the BBB method. I have bleach, borax, baking soda, and bought stabilizer and algae poly 60, and ph down (dry acid) at pool store. These are the only chemicals I have. Does anyone know why my water would still be cloudy? Pool has been brushed and vacuumed and no visual algae in pool.
