alkalinity 200 ppm
hardiness 300 ppm
about two weeks ago I shocked the pool after a heavy rain and added granule chlorine. I put the chlorine tablet in the floater and I thought that was all I had to do. Since then i have been fighting to get the layer of powdery stuff off the bottom of the pool. I used the vacuum that came with the pool but all it does is make the pool cloudier. it definately is not a clear pool. I can see to the bottom but it is murky.
