We just bought a house with a pool and have no idea what we are doing. I am trying to take care of it myself since my husband would rather fill it in than deal with it. I've been to the pool store and managed to get it from green to cloudy (previous owners filled before we moved in but didn't put any chemicals in so it was green two days after we moved in). I've been back a couple times now and they keep giving me something else to try but the pool is still cloudy. The last water sample I brought in on the 11th showed the Free Chlorine at 0, I shocked it again yesterday and bought some test strips from Walmart (ordered a test kit but it's not here yet) and as of this morning Free Chlorine and Total chlorine are at 0. Is this why it's cloudy? The CYA is also low at 24 and pH is high at 8.
