    Pool has been cloudy for a while, slight green tint to it

    Been brushing it each day

    Just vacuumed to waste and am filling it back up as I type this

    Been using Walmart Bleach

    Added some cellouse DE substitute to filter

    What else can I do?

    Rain has been real heavy in our area and caused the pool to fill up

    It can easily take a sand filter a week to fully clear up the water after an algae outbreak, counting from when the algae is all dead. If everything is going well, you should see a visible improvement from day to day, maybe not large, but something.

    Green cleared up fast after chlorine level was kept at 15 for a day or so.

    Water is starting to clear after running pump over night.

    Needed to backwash this afternoon after we got a bunch of rain and the pool got close to the top of the skimmer opening.

    So we will keep it running 24/7
