I have a 15'x48" deep above ground pool. Approximately 5,000 gallons. I have been working for 2 weeks to try and get the pool open and get the water clear. It was very green upon opening this year. I have shocked it multiple times and the most recent was this past Wednesday evening when i double shocked it. I am still left with a cloudy/milky water that wont clear up. I have not been able to see the bottom of the pool or more than 10 inches down since I started. As i mentioned, I shocked it Wednesday evening and let it run for 24 hours with pump on. On Thursday evening I tested the levels with my Taylor 2006 test kit and the numbers were as follows.
Thursday evening 5-26-16
PH - 7.6
Alk - 130ppm
Hardness - 70ppm
CYA - 90ppm
I left it alone Thursday, cleaned the filter cartridge and left the pump running as it has been this whole time. This evening, Friday I tested it again with the following numbers.
Any suggestions on what I should try next. Is it as simple as just continuing to filter and eventually it will clear up? Are there any of these numbers that I can adjust that might clear up the water.
Any help is appreciated. I had hoped to have the pool ready by this Memorial Day weekend but no luck yet.
