You had mentioned they had high TA. Cal hypo will cloud the water when they add it. Should go away after a while.
How long should you expect it to cloud the water more after adding? Plan on getting the pH down after FC gets to 10 or less so we can accurately see what the pH is. We have went from a green pond to this and it is proving to be the hardest stage.

That is a filtration issue.

It can cloud for awhile. I have never used it so not sure exactly. Depends on your water chemistry. Cal hypo and bleach are about the same price per available chlorine.

Is your pool a crystal clear TFP pool? Have they *seen* how nice a pool can look when they do things right and not try to rush it with potions that have failed them in the past? Like that OxiBlast stuff?
Why do they fret over $200 in bleach when they'd spend that and more if they listened to the pool store?
I don't understand?
It didn't turn green in one day, so one can't expect to fix it in one either.

They aren't fretting. They are just two parents with a newborn that are tired from no sleep and needing this project over. I can understand as I have 3 small kids. Yes, I'm on my 5th season of a TFP pool.
