    Intex 15x36 metal frame green

    I was hoping someone could give me some advice. I am working with a 15x36 metal frame intex pool that has turned green. I was away for a couple days and then had a huge rain storm. I am currently using a TF-100 testing kit
    Chlorine 5
    Aklinity 60
    PH 7.2
    CYA under 20 ( I will be adding more stabliler)
    Should I add more chlorine to shock it? Thank you in advance for you help.

    Yes, you should raise FC to 10 and recheck and replenish it repeatedly until it passes all three tests in the Shock Level and Maintain process article.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Ok I thought so. I'm actually helping a friend with hers. This site was so helpful with helping me last year when I had the same problem. I just wanted to double check I was remembering right.
