    Green cloudy water HELP!!!!

    So, we have put up an 18 x 48 Intex Easy Set pool. We have had cloudy green water since it has been up and have made NUMEROUS trips to the pool store. It was clear Saturday morning until we saw that it needed vacuumed, after we vacuumed it the water became very cloudy and green colored again. I have tested it with the 6 way HTC kit from walmart and all levels show to be good. ANY advice would be greatly appreciated. I also have the 1500 cartridge filter that came with the pool but have ordered a new 2500 filter pump that should be delivered tomorrow, will this help at all?? I am greatly frustrated and running to the pool store daily to get it tested is getting rather expensive! HELP!!!
    1) The size of your pool in gallons (7700 gallons)
    2) The type filter you have (cartridge)
    3) If your pool is an AG (above ground)
    5) Currently have the 1500 Intex Cartridge pump but upgrading to the 2500 Intex pump tomorrow.

    Hi jfoster182 and welcome to TFP!
    Yes, a better filter is always better with Intex pools, Mine was a very sorry 1000GPH with a 'A' cartridge filter. I did have a 15'X 48".
    Read through Pool School Link at the top of the page.
    Make sure you read this one about testing kits:

    The preferred kit is the TF-100, next the TF-50 and then the Taylor K-2006 kit
    This method taught here works around having your own test kit and then learning what the pool needs and addressing those needs.

    Read, read and read here and this will be the best college education for free here at TFP!

    See this link and follow instructions:

    Swim n Play 21' round, expandable 72" liner, 6FT deep center, buried 14", 12,750 Gallons
    Waterway 1HP-2 speed with 22" Sand filter
    TF-100 test kit
    Thanks to TFP my pool is perfect all the time :party:
    I now suffer from Sparklypoolitis! :whoot:
    I am a Platinum contributor because I want everyone who comes here to Trouble Free Pool to have the same success that I enjoy with my pool and family.
