HI! I am new to the site but have been doing lots of research and doing the BBB method on my new pool. We just had it installed at the end of march a 27ft round and 52inches deep. We have no had on problem with our pool water and I constantly tested the pool water, kept them at the ranges of ph 7.2, my cya around 40 to 50, my alk at around 120 to 150, and chlorine at around 4ppm to 5ppm. I would once a week brush the sides, and vacuum the bottom of the pool. Always had crystal clear water. Then I had to let it go on weekend cause I had a arts and crafts festival out of town. Thinking nothing would happen but it rained that weekend in my town. I was out of town and could not work on the pool was the reason for letting it go. Came home on monday and planned to work on it tuesday before work. Got up tuesday morning, and it was apple green. So I followed this procedure:
Shock to 15 ppm to 20ppm and keep it there with bleach.
Brush the sides daily and then vacuum daily.
I did this and the next day green gone. Just nasty cloudy water that looked like someone poured milk in the water. So here I am on sunday, still been keeping the shock to 15ppm but I don't have a good tester yet. I ordered a new one just not here yet. I can see the bottom finally but very cloudy water. How can get this cloudy out? Or should I just continue and be patient? Right now my levels are as follows:
tc 20ppm(just added more bleach)
Oh and forgot to add, that I have been running my filter (sand filter) 24/7 since I started all the shocking.
