OK so I've been lurking for 3 weeks reading everything here. We bought a home two months ago with a swamp green pool that had not been cleaned in a couple years. We have gotten it to the bluish green cloudy color and it won't get any better. So before I go on here is all my info.
24 by 48 above ground pool with a sand filterand a new pump that works well. Sand is also new.
My stats are finally holding over night they are:
Total chlorine 2
free chlorine 3
I admit I broke BBB a couple times out of frustration. I have used algecide and shock. Total in 2 weeks we have added 22 bleach 12 shock bags 24 pounds baking soda and one box of borax. We added cellulose fiber because it seems that all parts of the pool are clean but it's all tiny particles floating in my water. Problems are that it seems no matter how slow we add it clogs our filter and we're forced to back wash due to no flow. We are frustrated and just want our kids to swim but we've spent so much on it we are about done with pool money. Please help. Sorry for any grammer issues. I am posting this through my phone. I know it's long but wanted to make sure I provided all info possible.
