I have been having problems with my pool since last summer. Purchased a house last august where the pool just had a large chicken wire wooden structure on top of it to keep out individuals, so the water was extremely green and algae filled from a summer with no chemicals/cover. Tried to get it working that summer but ran out of time, although later found out skimmer line was busted so that was fixed early this summer.
This spring, we opened it up and fixed some lines and various other problems and it turned green once again. The guy helping me fix the pool gave me some advice to get it crystal clear which was 16 gal of 10% liquid chlorine. I added the 16 gal and for 3 days it was cloudy and the chlorine levels stayed sky high and it turned the milky blue it is still to this day. The levels of FC came down and that's where I'm at now. So I've been trying to get it clear these past few weeks by balancing everything and still nothing, the pool place gave me some ideas (the TA was high, clarify) but none worked so hopefully I can get some help here, I've searched through the forums and read the advice but I still no not what to do. I've been given so much advice from various individuals that I don't know which route to go.
Here are my current levels and pictures I just took
pH-7.0-7.2 (due to me lowering my TA)
TH - 300
CYA 5-10 ppm (although i have added about 2-3 lbs to help raise this more about 2 days ago)
Any help to get me going would be great!!!! I was hoping to get it up and going by memorial day for our cookout hopefully I can!!
