I thought I would record my journey on here. To prove to myself, and any newcomers, that it was and is possible. I will try to provide pictures daily if I can along with my chemical usage and readings. For a little background, property was purchase end of April 2014. Pool was black. Hired pool company to "fix" for me, $1000 later, no fix. New internal parts all around in filter and new pump in 2013. Pool went from black, to clear enough to see the bottom of the shallow end, to murky and NOW back to black, algae ridden cess pool. TF 100 Test Kit.
And so begins my journey:

CYA: 0-20 - No change
3 gallons bleach @ 8:30 PM
