Hi! New to this forum, and am in dire need of help. I have been trying for 2 weeks to clear up the cloudiness in my pool. It is an 18ft round, above ground pool that we did not cover last year. Very green and yucky when we started this process. Have shocked many times, added algecide, and keep chlorine in the floater at all times. Took water sample in for testing yesterday, pool is balanced, but the water is still cloudy. The sales guy recommended buying some DE and sprinkling 2 cups into the skimmer, let it run all night and backwash this morning. We did. Still cloudy, actually cloudier. I am at my wits end, and have a party this Sunday. would love to swim, but not looking promising. i should mention that the pool has run consistently for 2 weeks!
