Hello again everyone. Ok so I opened my pool and the pump went out. All I had was a .75hp pump to use. Cleared the green up perfectly and no algae left after scrubbing. Crystal clear for a week. I vacuumed a few days ago and put in a brand new cartridge for my filter and now the pool water will not clear back up. It's blue but cannot see the bottom drain..just the walls. Here are my levels

FC: 5
PH 7.3
CYA: 40
ALK 80-used to be 200 all last yr

Any ideas or Slam?

Okay so I don't see any responses to this, but I figured out the problem. It was the new cartridge filter. Didn't rinse it as well as it needed so that powder inside of it was going straight into the pool. It's clear now. Maybe a good reminder to people with Cartridge to spray those things heavily with the comb
