I have gone through the complete switch over to BBB. I was initially extremely happy. Water looked "sparkly" and crisp (almost like champagne bubbles when someone jumped in) and it actually smells good. Over the last 2 weeks my water quality has diminished very slightly. There is a slight haze in the water. When I am in swimming with googles, the appearance is like the googles are slightly foggy. When looking down in the water at the main drain, it doesn't look perfectly detailed. I have really only made two changes since the BBB switch. I lowered my filter run time from 24/7 to two 8 hour run times (3-11 AM and PM). I ran the filter 24/7 due to my aerating process for high TA. The other change seems to be an unexplained rise in my CH. Jason thought maybe I lowered the pH too low at some point during my TA lowering because I had a jump in CH somewhere during that time frame.
My questions are should I try some clarifiers, etc.?
My numbers over the last 2-3 weeks as best as I can remember:
4 wks ago (just prior to full BBB) 3 wks ago (after aeration) 1.5 wks ago today
FC 5 2 2.5 2.5
TC 5 2 2.5 2.5
CC 0 0 0 0
pH 7.2 7.0 7.5 7.5
TA 190 70 100 100
CH 390 no check 525 460
CYA 30 no check ?20-30 no check
salt 1510 no check 1920 no check
borate 20 20 50 50
ORP 650 670 680
I feel confident this haziness isn't algae. Any ideas??
