Test Kit - Sorry, do not have a good test kit, above test results are from the local pool store.
My pool pump broke down three months back and I have just installed a new pool pump. In the meanwhile, pool was accumulating all sorts of things - leaves, dust, frogs, bugs etc.
After installing the new pump, I cleaned the pool somewhat (few buckets of waste) and then the water got too dirty (dark green) for me to see what am I cleaning. So, I decided to start the balancing process. I got the water tested and put the required amount of chemicals suggested by the pool store. After putting all the chemicals, water changed color to soft white blue color. It is very cloudy and the bottom is not visible even at the shallow end. I waited for a day and then got the water tested again. The result mentioned above are from that testing. My local pool store guy asked me to put some clarifier and wait for 12 hours which I did yesterday. It is now more than 20 hours and nothing has changed - pool water looks still the same.
I will appreciate if you would please advice me on the next steps to help resolve this problem.
Thanks a lot.
