So I am on my second month with the new tub. The first month I learned about Dichlor overuse and suffered issues with high CYA. I drained and refilled the tub 3 weeks ago and everything was fine until this week. The water went cloudy on me and I cannot get it back. I have shocked it with MPS several times over the last few days but no luck. Here are my current readings:
I have also put in a new filter 2 days ago. I am adding bleach daily to keep FC at 3-5ppm and have been shocking with MPS weekly now every 2 days trying to get the water to clear again. I also add scale inhibitor weekly. I am totally confused as to why the water is cloudy as it smells fresh. I did notice this morning that it looked a little better when I first opened the cover but after an hour or two with the cover off it became completely cloudy again. Water in this thing has been a battle compared to the pool. How can I get 3 months between fills when I cannot seem to keep the water clear for even 3 weeks? We use the tub with 4 people about 3 times/week for about a half hour per use and I always add bleach after each use.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. I would also like to note that it is set for 4 2-hour filter cycles per day currently. Water temp is between 100 and 102.
