Hello all. I am a pool noob but I am eager to learn. Opened my new house's pool up in July and everything went great for a month. Then I had a cloudy issue which quickly turned into a green issue. I've been going to my local pool store (dramatic pause for everyone to laugh at me) and they gave me the magic algecide chemical. That was 5 days ago. It worked great at removing the green within a day. But for the past 4 days I am left with a milk cloudy mess. So far I have tried the clarifier, extra chlorine, and I have the pump running 24/7, all while back washing almost every day. Today I did my first vacuuming, which was exciting (did I mention I am huge nerd) but seemed to leave the pool even more cloudy!
I know you want test results, but I just now discoverd this site and as a result ordered a Taylor 2006 test kit so the chemical composition may be a few days out. All know at the moment is what the generic strips say, which is chlorine is high, and ph is a little low. I appreciate anyone that would like to steer me in the right direction.
