    Welcome to TFP. What are you using to test? How have you been chlorinating your pool? You're most likely going to need to shock. To help, the folks here will also need CC, CYA & TA values. If you don't have a good test kit I suggest you buy one, it is crucial to maintaining your own pool. There's a Pool School button on the top right, lots of great info in there including test kit options.

    Please post a full set of test results, as Mike mentioned.

    Also, did you meet the three criteria to show that you have completed the shock process (a couple weeks ago)?

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
