    You need to shock your pool and grab some POP.

    You should follow the Shock Process article in Pool School.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    I would wait. You may end up backwashing and will lose the salt you just put in!

    It is better to get the pool balanced and clear before adding salt. Got kids? Check out the highlighted post here.

    Also, while in the shock process, you only need to be testing FC and CC ... everything else should not change and the pH test is not valid when the FC > 10ppm.
