I'm seeming to have an issue with my pool clearing up after our pool guy came several times to clean a swamp like pool. My wife and I purchased the house and the pool was a swamp. No insects swimming around that I could see. We hired a pool guy because we have no experience and he was recommended by my in-laws. He does great work. Anyways over the past 2 weeks or so he has come 3 times to put chemicals. To be honest I only know a few things he put in the pool. Acid, liquid chlorine, something to shock the pool in powder form, and few other things. The pool is currently blue but very cloudy and cant see the bottom. Almost like the dead algae is still floating around and not being filtered. The pump ran 24 hrs for a few days after each visit and still nothing. He's saying that now since its not clearing up that I might have to drain the pool half way and fill with clean water. I've been around reading and learning a lot from TFP and will be ordering my test kit from here soon. Since I know nothing about maintaining a pool, I've come to learn and ask for a second opinion from you guys. My pool info is in my signature (I know that's a must for any kind of help) and hope I can get this issue resolved.
Thanks in advance,
