I have a Intex pool that is 15 x 42". The pool water is very cloudy like milk.It was clear then we had a little rain.After the rain my pool turned really milky looking.When I took a water test with the test strips I was getting a 0 for free chlorine so I added 2 bags if shock,half bottle of Clarifier,algaecide and lots chlorine and chlorine bleach. # days later the pool is still the same.Oh I also drained the pool halfway and refilled.I went and bought a test kit to see if I could get a better reading and this is what I got
FC - 1
PH - 7.2
TA - 260
TH - 400 but the test says add the first 5 drops to the pool water and if there is hardness the water will turn red then add add and count the other drops and count till the water turns blue.The problem is the water never turned red with the first 5 drops.It turned purple.
cyanuric acid - 40
Ok there is the readings I got so if anyone can help me please do.My grandkids are staying with me for a week and they want to swim.
