I had all the same problems and still had cloudy water. STOP all the treatments and turn down the chlorine which is probably causing the cloud.In the panic trying to clear the pool, we run the filter non-stop which in turn adds way too much chlorine(chlorinator)which causes the cloud. I vacumn every morning and backwash till clear. Yesterday I turned the chlorinator down to almost off and this morning I could see the bottom. Now I'm gonna leave it off for the day and let the sun do a job on the chlorine and I'll bet money that she'll clear up. Too much chemicals fattens up the cash register and clouds up your pool.
pooluser: you are my new hero
I'd been off on holiday, came home to a cruddy pool, got everything back in balance but I couldn't get the cloudiness to go away. Racked my brain endlesssly. Like yours, the pool pump runs continuously so I turned down the chlorine feeder (always thought the more the better....wrong-o!) to low.
next day: gorgeous water the day after: clear as it has ever been
thanks! never would have thought that less is indeed better
