I have a 18 X 52 round Intex pool. I had a problem with algae and my water was green. I bought HTH Pool shock and used that and 2 days later the pool water was cloudy and had a green tint. I shocked it again and it is still cloudy, to the point I can't see the second step on ladder.
I took my water to be tested on Thursday and the PH was off so I had to add Dry acid, and a clarifier, as well as some stuff that makes the chlorine last longer in the water. I did all the above, and on Friday it was still cloudy. I added some more clarifier and nothing changed.
I went back to pool store today and had water tested and was told the water was perfect except it had no chlorine. I explained the cloudy water and was asked what I was using. I said HTH shock and Chlorine tablets, they informed me that those products are not 100% Chlorine and have fillers. They told me to use them up since I had them, but gave me a non chlorine shock to put in which I did at 10:30 this morning. I also went to check my chlorine floating thing and found that the tablet had turned to sludge. So I went and bought more and a different brand of Chlorine tablets. I have 3 floating Chlorinators in the pool and one in the filter. I just check the pool at 6 PM and it is still cloudy No change. I put more HTH Chlorine Shock in pool and about 1 hr later I check the pool and only change is I now see particles like the sludge from the HTH Chlorine floating in my pool.
I have bought new filters, brushed the bottom of the pool and have had filter running for 5 days straight. It is 108+ here in Vegas and I really want to use my pool anyone have any ideas.
