    Help clear my pool

    Tried everything from high chlorine level to flocking, etc. yesterday I brought a water sample to Leslie's because I could not clear the pool. I was told to try clear aid clarifier. She told me to use the entire bottle. Leave your pump running for 48 hours without shutting off or backwashing. This will take care of the "green." 24 hours later the water is greener then yesterday! I checked my levels an they are as follows:
    Alk-120
    PH-8.2
    FC-2
    HRD-100
    CYA-60
    Prior to the Clear Aid treatment, reading was:

    ALK-100
    PH -7.6
    FC-3
    HRD-100
    CYA-100
    How can I clear this up?

    Welcome to the forum. Full SLAM instructions in Pool School. Get that PH down to 7.2 before you start. You will also find that your CYA level is gonna be a hindrance to reaching SLAM level for your pool. I'd do a 1/3 drain before you start if possible, and retest your cya level as it could be much higher than 100.

    Step One: swear off the pool store
    Step two: get a proper FAS-DPD test kit
    Step three: Read through some of these threads and just do what they did.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
