    Troubled water aftre putting salt

    Hi all,

    I had a crystal clear water this weekend, this was before I started my salt system.
    I had the water analysed and it was perfect, but of course, no salt, so I added the recommended qty.
    60kg of salt for my 25,000 litres pool.
    12 hours later I don't see the bottom of the pool! I'ts all troubled.
    So what should I do, wait or do something about it?
    The water parameters are still OK.

    Thanks for any advices.
    5500 gals FiberGlass pool, Hayward propane heater. (Very usefull here in Quebec!)

    You should post a full set of water test results, especially the FC and CYA levels.

    Chances are that it is algae, but it is impossible to know without more information.

    As Jason said, full set of results will help us pinpoint your problem...it's not the salt unless you did not add enough or too much? Is your SWG working?
