I think I did all of the above.adding bicarb and calcium at the same time can cause cloudiness
also adding too much calcium or bicarb at once
but usually is start of an algae problem
I have the K2006 kit.The answer is usually "NO". Instead of trying to solve the puzzle, please tell us what we are working with.
What exact chemicals are you referring to? Please explain what you have added as well, and when.
Cloudy water is not about adding chemicals, but more in line with your chemistry being off.
Can you please advise how you test your water, what kit you are using, and how you are chlorinating your pool?
Have you read "Pool School" and the relationship between CYA/FC? Thanks!
No need until the water is clear and you are performing the overnight test.Is there a reason you're not testing CC every time you test FC?
I see nothing in how you added chemicals and this could be the cause of cloudiness. A proper SLAM is in order.Can someone tell me:
Adding too much [X] at one time;
Adding [X] and [X] too close together . . .
can cause water to be cloudy the next day.
HOW I added:No need until the water is clear and you are performing the overnight test.

I usually use the 10 ml. Since things are off, 25 would seem to be more accurate.see extended test kit directions and use 10ml sample, your test kit will last twice as long
you need to keep your chlorine higher for cya 60 your minimum fc is 5
and you dont want your ta or cya any higher
but it is accuracy that doesn't help you......you don't need .2 resolution when the parameters ALL are designed around .5 resolution.I usually use the 10 ml. Since things are off, 25 would seem to be more accurate.
I am on my phone so will tell what to look for. Do a search for "adding DE to a sand filter" in the search. Just now each filter is different. Some like this amount and some like that amount. You should start with 1/4 cup. Watch the pressure gauge close. If it shoots up turn the pump off and back wash. If the pressure does not go up then add another dose. You will have find what YOUR. filter likes.
