I am having problems getting my water crystal clean…I am on well water, which is filtered and softened. The above ground pool (18ft in diameter) is brand new, it came with a cartiridge filter, I just replaced it with a sand filter, PH is fine, so is the clorine level, have only ran the sand filter for two days….am I expecting too much too soon? Last night I added a pool clarifier, about two onces, to the pool, it still has a cloudy look to it. IT has also been treated for metals and was shocked this week……I am at a lose as to what to do next? Help?


I don't blame you for being frustrated. Sounds like you are doing all the right things to get it cleared up. Give it a few more days with the right chemistry and improved filtration. If that does not do it consider getting your TDS (total dissolved solids) and hardness levels looked at as either can lend to cloudy water.
