Cloudy water problem

Hi Elie and welcome to the forum.

When you say
ph is almost stable but still a little high
what is the value? Try to adjust the pH to the range of 7.2 - 7.4

What kind of chlorine did you add and how much? Often adding large amounts of chlorine can cause the swimming pool water to turn cloudy. This cloudiness usually disappears after a few days. Reducing the pH will speed up the use of the free chlorine, helping the chlorine level to drop more quickly.

As for the bubbles - did you add an algaecide? Algicides often cause the water to foam when added in quantities exceeding the recommended amount. Please could you give more info on the nature of the bubbles you mentioned.
