There could be several reasons your pool may be cloudy:
1. Not running pump long enough
2. High TDS (total dissolved solids) Your water is basically oversaturated with
junk that has entered it.
3. Your filter may be bypassing debris
4. Your pump may not be working correctly or may
5. Too much calcium in water
6. Algae spores may be forming (free chlorine level is too low)
Contaminates like pollen, leaves etc. may have entered your pool water
Tips to get rid of cloudiness:
Lower your ph. When your pH is
high in your pool heavier minerals such as calcium drop out of suspension causing cloudy water.
Add a good sequestering
agent. It will help your pool absorb more minerals and act like a band aid for a while.
Repair or replace your cartridges
and run your pump 24 hours.
Watch where you buy your chemicals from. A lot of big box stores put an extra amount of fillers
(junk) in their chemicals to lower cost.
Shock your pool with a shock high in chlorine like GLB Granular chlorine.
