Just trying to clear up my recently opened pool. Can someone provide guidance?

FC - 41
CC - .5
AK - 70
CYA - 20
Salt - 2350

The pool is blue but very cloudy. Any suggestions on next steps to clear up?

At this point, patience. Or maybe adding a little DE to aid filtering.
That FC is waaaay too high for 20 CYA if it's real

The ideal is the SLAM Process The link to adding DE is down near the bottom of it

I believe it to be correct. I use the TF test kit. I had a lot of liquid chlorine and obviously put too much in at one time. I believe it was 20 gallons. It also hasn't been very sunny in the last few days so I don't think I am losing too much during the day. Anything else you can think of in addition to adding DE?

Brush and vacuum. It's just a matter of getting all the dead stuff into the filter so it can get strained out.
