    Is that loose debris on the bottom? If so, it needs to be vacuumed out before you do anything else.

    What is the fill source? City or well water? Can you please post test results and tell us how you got those results.

    I'd also like to refer you to Pool School if you have not been there already. If you have, please take the time to read it again. Top right of every page.

    Read Pool School. Shock is not a product or one time thing. It is a process that can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks.

    What filter do you have? If it is a sand filter, you can vacuum to waste to get rid of some of it.

    ouch. Those little venturi types can't get the fine stuff out of the pool. You will need to get some sort of adapter to go to your skimmer outlet (suction port on the pump) to vacuum through the filter.
