the pool was cloudy before i went on a trip for 2 weeks. while i'm out, the water dropped below the filter intake, so it wasn't filtering for weeks. and also run out of chlorine tab for sure.
i came home to this green pool that i can not even see my first step, which is about 1 ft deep ...
so i backwashed the filter, put in the DE. after i turn on the pump, there's a lot of white deposit coming out from the water outlets (for about a minute) and they even form a floating layer with kind of white flaky material.
after i shocked the pool, added algaecide, and ran the filter for days, the water lighten a bit, and now i can see 3 ft deep in the pool. but water is now milky with a green tone. and it's been like that for week.
is it possible that i put in too much DE and muddy up the water? i backwashed couple times now, trying to speed up the cleaning process. there's one time that i forgot to flip the back wash switch before i put in the DE from skimmer, will this damage the filter? should i try to run filter without putting more DE after backwash?
here's my water test result today,
Total Hardness: 1000 ppm
Total Chlorine: 0 ppm
Bromine: 2 ppm
Total Alkalinity: 120 ppm
Stabilizer: 50 ppm
could you advice me on how to save this pool?
thanks you so very much,
