Aqua silk help

Postby cheshire » Sun 08 Jun, 2014 13:41

I use Aqua silk by Bacquasil and this year I am eating up the oxidizer like crazy. The pool has tested great but the water is still hazy. I changed the sand still hazy. the oxidizer I put in lasted 2 days tops. Can anyone help me?

1. Check your water balance. Aqua Silk and Baquacil are not overly pH dependent, but excessively low or high calcium hardness or total alkalinity levels can cause carbonates and minerals to precipitate – making the water hazy or cloudy.
2. Check your sanitizer levels, to maintain the optimum level.
3. Shock with your oxidizer to remove any bacteria in the water, and help improve filtration. If cloudiness persists, use Cloud-Out shock.
4. Run the filter pump 24 hrs per day while correcting cloudy water. Backwash or clean the filter when pressure rises 8-10 lbs.

Aqua Silk is Bacquacil with a different branding.

They are both PHMB, not recommended btw!
