Water Balanced, Cloudy Pool

Postby OrangePie » Mon 23 May, 2011 13:31

Problem: Pool is blue, but cloudy. Especially in the deep end.

FC: We used Bromine. The bromine level is 4.
TC: Again. Bromine.
pH: 7.2
TA: 120
CH: 200
CYA: Bromine pool

My pool: 100,000 gallons.
Pool chemicals: Bromine.
My pump & filter: Sand Filter.
Other info: We used a winter cover to hold in water. We balanced the pool, shocked last week, and used some algae gaurd to kill algae. The pool is now balanced and free of any algae, but still pretty cloudy. I shocked 6 days ago.

Thoughts?

I couldn't find an edit button.

But, also I put in clarifier 2 days ago. It may have helped a smidge, but not much.

If the cloudiness is mostly in the deep end and you don't have a floor drain, then try pointing a return in the deep end downward to stir up the water. Also, you can Add DE to a Sand Filter to improve filtration.
