Bought a house with a pool last Nov, it is our first pool. Hired a local company to open and found a swamp!! under the cover. Pool guy (after adding a bunch of shock) told me to run the filter until the water cleared LOL. No testing and he told me not to bother adding any more chems until water was clear!!! After 2 days of no improvement I started to read this forum and went to "pool school" through this site. Decided to go with BBB and after much hard work and effort I have a beautiful clear pool to enjoy with family and friends.
Thanks much to all the posters that got me through this!!!!!!!!
