My SWCG was activated last thursday. Prior to adding salt, my water was well balanced and crystal clear using tri chlor tabs. My salt is now at 3500ppm (within range for Aquapure 1400), other numbers are as follows:

FC 5.0
TC 5.0
CYA 60
TA 100
CH 250
PH 7.3
Temp 80.

I run my pump 12 hours a day and the SWCG is set at 55% production. We haven't had rain in about 2 weeks. Shouldn't my water be as clear as it was before? It is not cloudy but just not as clear as before--it used to look like I was looking into a glass of water. I just backwashed my DE two days ago but so far no difference.

My filter is just over a month old. I back flushed per the instructions given and haven't had any issues until now so i don't know what I could may have done wrong.
