I'm a novice pool owner. I have an inground 20,000g with a sand filter and I use chlorine.
I took the mesh cover off 6 days ago and was greeted by a green swamp. I ran the filter continuously and brought the chemicals within parameters. I also added algaecide and shocked it several times. I now have blue water with no signs of algae. However, I cannot get rid of the cloudy water (about 3-4 days). I have been filtering up to 12-24 hours per day, monitoring the filters/backwash pressure, and also tried several treatments of clarifier. Any insight on what I'm doing wrong?
