Postby Nick » Wed 01 Aug, 2007 21:16

We have a 6000 gallon vinyl pool, and have been enjoying it for the past three months, however for the past week we have been unable to rid our pool of the whitish cloudy look. here are our numbers:

TH : 200
FC: 0-1
pH: 7.3
TA: 180
CYA: 30-50

Help!

i work at a pool store and what we give out is called ultra bright. It will do the trick 4-8oz per 10,000 gal pre mix it with water and add right into the pool. another product is called floc. Also if you have a DE filter check the grids to make sure they are not ripped, it could be DE you are seeing and that stuff can cause cancer. good luck.

For one thing, your chlorine is very low. It should a minimum of 3ppm at all times. Cloudy water can be lot of things. Are you shocking with Calcium Hydrochloride? It can often make your water whitish and cloudy.

What kind of filter do you have? Is this a "real" pool or one of those popups?

Nick it is very important that you eliminate the elements which causes murky water one at a time.

Very often than not main problem ppl seem to miss is with the circulation and suction.

Other than that the rest have been answered.
