I had this same problem and here is what I did, I made sure all my chems were right, ph, Chlorine, TA, then I waited for about an hour or two. I used a SUPERFLOC product, ran the pump about an hour or two, then turned it off overnight, went out there this morning and it was clear I could see the bottom!! ALL the funk was at the bottom, so I vacuumed it and then let it sit, then vacuumed it agian, I did this three times today and now my water is really clear!! I am SOo happy!!I had the same problem, you were having I am pretty sure!! Good luck, let me know if you have any problems!

Will the floc affect the water balance...chlorine, ph, etc?

Floc and pool water

Flocculant or clarifier will not affect the water balance in any way. It does not change the pH, total alk and can't deplete the available free chlorine.

Its purpose is to clump together the particles that your filter can't trap making them bigger so they will get caught in the filter. The floc also makes these clumps heavy so they tend to settle on the pool floor for easy vacuuming.

okay, i used the floc as you suggested...it immediately made my pool cloudy (i could see the bottom of the pool before the floc, now i can't even see the bottom in the shallow end) is this normal? I shut it off overnight, went out there this morning, the pool is still just as cloudy as can be and i cannot see the bottom. it has made it worse!!! what can i do now?????????? HELP!!!!

Run the filter round the clock. Backwash frequently. Vacuum when the bottom becomes visible.

What's your chemical balance, PH, chlorine and TA all within normal ranges?? Have you had rain lately? If everything is balanced then floc it again, run the pump for an hour or two and then turn in off for 24 - 48 hours. when I looked in the water I could see tons of minute little specs in the water... I didn't vacuum everything out, the water is cloudy again, but I need to shock after a week full of rain...
How much floc did you use? I used almost a whole bottle :shock: it worked wonders, sprinkle it all over the water. And sure it's a SUPER FLOC( I got mine at Leslies... ) my bottle said really cloudy water may need repeat applications, so I would suggest that you keep doing it until your water clears.
