    Mizztee, I'll second the advice get one of the recommended test kits. It may seem pricy at first, but what it will save you in chemicals you don't need and the headache/heartache of a cloudy or green pool will make it worth every penny and then some. I've had a pool for almost twenty years, switched this year to the methods I learned on this site, and my pool looks OUTSTANDING. Better than it has ever looked, and it's EASY - with the right test kit.

    You can do it! If you follow the advice you'll receive here, your pool will be sparkly in no time.

    Welcome to TFP.
    Here are a couple of articles that will help you a lot.
    ABC'S Of Pool Water Chemistry
    How To Chlorinate Your Pool.
    If you want to clear that pool up your going to need one of these Test Kits. Get the TF-100 with the XL option. It has the extra reagents needed to help clear that pool up.
    Any questions you have don't hesitate to ask. 😎

    Re: Pool


    People have cleared far worse than your mess. Here's some inspiration. I like the pictures more than all the discussion, myself.

    Just do what they did! It starts with test results you can trust, not "free" tests done by someone who makes a living selling pool chemicals.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    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!
