    Welcome. It sounds like you may have some metals in your water. Ever done that before? Are you on well water?

    I miss to say pool is in 2nd month, It was ok but we were on vacation and the pump stop working for some days and from them start to get cloudy and when I shock it with the non clorine oxidizer did not improve, not clear for days, thats when the pool store guy recommend the chlorine shock power powder and after that turn light green and cloudy.
    If I put a bag of the non clorine oxidizer, it raises the FC to the minimum but the TCL goes above.....
    When I fill the pool I used a hose filter...
    Thank's

    You need to cruise over to Pool School and read up on the SLAM process. Suggest you order a good test kit listed there too.

    Welcome to TFP! Hope you have ordered your test kit! Stop using powdered products as it is contributing to the cloudiness of your water. Please read Pool School and how the properly SLAM your pool.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
