PH and cloudy pool water

Postby Amy » Sat 02 Jun, 2007 18:42

I had to raise the PH in my pool rather quickly. I put PH up in it last night and again this morning twice. After the 2nd time I noticed the pool became very cloudy. It has stayed cloudy all day. So my question is: Can raising the PH too quickly make the pool cloudy? All other cemicals are right on target and PH is now 7.2.

It shouldn't be cloudy at 7.2 if everything else is okay. Perhaps you aren't waiting long enough to test.

You really need to wait for the pool to completely turn over before testing but can get fairly good results if you circulations is good in about 6 to 8 hours.

What are all your other readings?
