Cloudly pool water because of mud

Postby sarahandkevin » Wed 17 Jun, 2009 06:35

hi me and my girlfriend recenly had a party and loads of people went in the pool, after the pool was cloudly, but it isnt as bad now because we have been using a shock pot to shock the pool and also been using a chlorine with algaecide and clarifier, which comes in a floater you put in the pool, and we have also been using a filter pump that come with our bestway 12 foot swimming pool

but there is still some mud in the pool or something like that, we use a soft broom and sweep it from the bottom of the pool and it looks like dust, a brown cloud appears

we did a test strip a minute ago and the results are

pH is between 7.8 and 8.4 (between ok and high)
ppm free chlorine is between 0 and 0.5 (low)
ppm total alkalinity is between 120 and 180 (between ok and high)
ppm stabilizer is ok

my pool is an above ground pool, it is a steel frame pro bestway pool, it is 12 foot

the weather has been warm recently
