So nice for you to be transforming that whole backyard area into a nice retreat. You will certainly notice the filter will catch less as there is less to catch like you said. Just keep doing your chlorine thing, clean the filter when necessary, and brush the pool often and vaccum out and remove whatever you can. You're getting there!! Every day moving in the right direction. Great progress !

FC was at 12.5 at 7:30. Added another quarter bottle of chlorine for the night, I’m getting better at estimating this stuff. Plus it might rain tonight. Will test in the morning before I head to the gym/work

So should I just keep on with the chlorine and running the pump/filter, or is there something that will clear up the cloudiness faster? Filter has been running all day yesterday and this morning was only at 18 PSI. Even when it gets to 20-23 the jets and suction still run great.

I'm sure it's just a matter of patience, but if there's more I can do I'm all ears!

Nicole tested the chlorine around 3:30 -
FC 10.5
CC 1
TC 11.5

Holding pretty good, had her add just a little. Here's a pic for today, it's been raining so it may not look as clear as it actually is.

8:30 test:

FC 14
CC 0.5
TC 14.5

We had added a bit more chlorine since there was calls for heavy rain (and oh did it pour) but now the storm is passed. We’ll be good for the night. In about a half hour I’ll take a pic with the light on
