I've got a cloudy pool and unfortunately wasted my money on a cheap test kit. Until I get the water to the pool deal for testing, can anyone look at the results I've got from my cheapo test and make some recommendations until I get a good test?

The water is cloudy--can't see the shallow end. I used algaecide yesterday and there was some dead algae on the surface today (a little foam). I brushed everything and haven't done anything else. Any recommendations? I've backflushed the filter every other day or so. This pool sat for 4 years!
