Cloudy pool

New pool. On Friday, made mistake of running the filter right off before backwashing/rinsing first. Large, thick, tan cloud of sand (possibly, dust from the sand) got into pool; unable to even see the second step of the ladder. Since then, we have been adding a clarifier to grab hold of the dust to make it heavy enough to fall to the bottom to vacuum. Day by day it's seems to be clearing. We are able to see the bottom of the pool now. However, the water still seems to have a slight cloudy look to it. Will we ever get to that crystal clear look we had before this happened?

I hope you have been backwashing since then.

Yes, it will clear. Keep your chemicals balanced and your pump running, brush and vacuum daily and a big dose of patience.
