Hi,

Our pool water is finally looking great and testing right. Had salt installed. Dumped in a ton of calcium. Took a lot of work, and thought we were finally ready. Perfectly clear when looking at it from the decking. But when you're in the water, your vision is blurry. It's hard to see the contours of your hand that is right in front of your face. Any thoughts on why? Is it the salt?

Are you saying that when you are under water with a mask on, things are blurry?

I have never noticed it before. Only after I went liquid chlorine. Maybe the water was always cloudy so it wasn't as noticeable?

No mask. Just open eyes. For example, as I swim underwater toward the wall, I cannot see the wall until I am right on it.
That is normal for any body of water, pool, lake, etc.
