    Cloudy light blue water that won't clear - accidently used step 1 of hth g2b

    Hi - I have an intex ultra frame 22 or 24 feet around, 52 deep. I left the water in over the winter and started by adding a bunch of shock over the past 4 days. I accidently added step 1 of the hth green to blue system. The pool is a very light shade of blue, but cloudy. I really don't want to add the step 2 from green to blue, but I'm not sure if I have to now. Is it why the pool has stayed cloudy? I've been running the filter for about 20 hours - should I just keep on filtering till it clears? Thanks for the help!

    Hello and welcome to TFP! When you added that product, did you vacuum to waste? You may want to read THIS THREAD. In addition, you'll probably need to do a TFP "SLAM" are outlined in the link below in my sig. Read that page carefully. Good luck.

    I didn't use the floc that comes with it, I accidently used the shock portion. I'd rather not use the floc since its a PIA to vacumn out. I have a well but I hate to see the water wasted. Since I did use step 1, do I have to use step 2 (the floc)?
