You may find something similar in your case as the pool clears. You are doing a great job!
    What is "slamming?" I'm a newbie and have the same color algae problem. Chemical levels are all look normal. The vacuum is picking everything up so no major debris. My filter is normally at 11 psi and it was at 15 so I backwashed. Still no major changes. Any help?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    We recommend the ShockLevelAndMAINTAIN Process to clear up pools. This is much more controlled method than the blindly dumping of chemicals that pool stores often recommend. To do it properly though, you need to invest in one of the Recommended Test Kits so that you can accurately test your water.

    I would also suggest you take a look at Pool School. Start with these:

    ABCs of Water Chemistry
    Recommended Pool Chemicals
    How to Chlorinate Your Pool
