    never had pool issues this bad before

    my pool got cloudy 2 weeks ago and I am struggling to clear it. I cant seem to kill the algae although
    i have been back washing daily and scrubbing the liner. All my levels were in the OK range today except ph was low so I added
    ph plus.
    I keep the auto vacuum going 24/7 but tonight the water is turning a green colour.

    I also dumped a gallon of bleach in 2 nights ago but no real changes.

    What more can I do at this point?

    You need to order a reliable test kit and ditch the strips. We recommend the TF100 which you can find here Test Kit Comparison.

    We need good reliable test results and not those from a pool store.

    You also need to read:

    Please ask any questions you may have once you have read the educational material provided to help you understand your pool water.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
