    Strange chlorine issues

    I need help.
    My in ground tiled pool is 12000 gal and the water is presently at 88F. I'm using a sand filter.
    I'm using a Taylor K-2600 testing kit
    I have what I believe a mustard algae infection.
    I have been throwing about 16 gal of liquid chlorine at 6% with no effect on the chlorine level except that the water looks much better.
    I can now see the bottom of my pool.
    Yesterday I tested again everything. Almost no chlorine, PH: 7.6, TA: 100, CYA: 60 then had 4 gal of liquid chlorine
    This morning the water looks a bit clearer, almost no chlorine, PH: 7.2, TA: 100, CYA: 60

    What should I do next???
