Water is still very cloudy. I can not see the bottom. I keep using a clarifier as well. What should I do?


Assuming that all your number are in line, it just takes time and continuous chlorine with thew filter running 24/7.

Post your latest test numbers so we can be sure.

Free Chlorine 0.3 (Low)
Total Chlorine 1.6 (ok)
ph 7.8 (high)
Cyanuric Acid 10 (Low)
Copper 0 (ok)


if the comments in brackets came from the pool store, you better stay away from them. Total Chlorine > Free Chlorine means you've a Combined Chlorine (here = 1.6 - 0.3 = 1.3), and it's not a good result. you'll need to shock at least 10 times higher than the Combined Chlorine.

I would suggest you get yourself a decent test kit, Taylor K-2006 is a good start.
