Hey TFP!

I have an 8 year old vinyl IG pool. 18x36. 30,000 gallons.

I can’t seem to get it cleared up this year. Here are my levels...

Total Alkalinity 50
pH 7.4
FC 8
TC 8
Total Hardness 200
Cya 60
Salt 3100ppm

It’s very milky/cloudy! Any suggestions are appreciated!!!

I imagine an expert will chime in soon. If you are cloudy I would guess near an alge bloom or interaction of an additive. I would have thought you would have some cc showing if a bloom.

A couple things they are going to ask are:
1. What test kit are you using or are those pool store numbers.

2. Please put your pool information in your signature, similar to mine. (If you are on a phone, turn phone sideways to see sig. This helps them with size, equipment, location etc.
3. What have you put in the pool lately, any algicide, flock, shock, etc.
