hello, I have been having trouble with a cloudy pool, last year, and now I am one week into it, and not any improvement, the water, is cloudy, I have a 24ft round, above ground with a paper cartridge filter. I have put 7- 8 bags of shock in this week,( started with 2 the first day, and one everynite since. 5 lbs. of alkalinity up (day 3 of pool start up , 5lbs. of stabilizer(this has been in for for 4 days),
May 24th numbers from a test at pool store
Total chlorine-7.0, Free chlorine 0.0, ph-6.7, total alkalinity 70, calcium hardness-250, stabilizer-0, chorine shock-7.0-they said to add alkalinity5 lbs, and shock it
Total chlorine-3.0, free chlorine, 0.0, ph-6.8, total alkalinity120, calcium hardness-160, stabilizer, 10, chlorine shock-3.0-pool store said to keep shocking
I went in the pool, and still had some leaves to clean up, it was a rough winter here, and some of this fell in the pool, it it good as far as anymore debris, but I had this problem last year...please what are your recommendations, I added a 1/2 cup of ph increase and shocked again last nite...my skin is burning from going in there...
