Been reading this thread as I have been dealing with the same problems. I have a SWG system - that broke, along with leaks in the pool and solar heating system. I shut down the pool for a few days, got everything fixed and replaced, but in the meantime the pool turned green. So I went ahead and shocked it with 4 128 oz bottles of liquid shock, ran the pump for 2 days straight, vacuumed the pool, changed filters. Water went from green to non-green in a couple of days, but now the pool has been cloudy for almost a week now. I can not get back to crystal clear.
Current readings (my test kit)
PH: 7.8 (slightly high)
All readings seem to be within reason. Every time my pool was cloudy was usually due to low chlorine. However, now the chlorine level went from shock level down to 4.0, so I am assuming all the algae has been killed off. It's not green.
My next thought would be to just run the pool for 48 hours straight again and add salt as that number is a little low. Or do I just give it more time to clear up?
