    Little help..water cloudy, water tests good

    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    I got my pool up and running, around 20.5k above ground pool.
    Running a Hayward dream line sand filter.

    I opened the pool about 1-1/2 weeks ago, it was very green. Have shocked it and also passed overnight shock test.

    After water tested good I immediately thought my filter isnt doing its job so opened up filter to see broken line added new sand and Fixed line and have ran for 2 days straight and pool doesn't seem to be clearing much....
    Any suggestions? Possibly pipe broke again?

    Give it time. Last spring at opening my pool was clean (as in no algae) but hazy/dirty from silty junk getting through the cover. It took a week to sparkle. The shock process will likely take longer.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
