    Cloudy and green/blue water

    I have been testing my pool and these are the numbers. FC 12, CC 0.05, TA 120, CH 150, CYA 50 pH 7.5. The water is cloudy and greenish. I have had some algae and brushed the sides but since my chlorine is so high, do I add more bleach? I just can't seem to get it cleared up. Been working on it for about 2 weeks. The CYA was 0 about a week ago and I added conditioner, about 4.5 lbs. Just not sure what to do. Thanks in advance.

    Was salt but cell is out. Now using bleach and troublefree pool.

    You FC level is not nearly high enough to eradicate algae based on your CYA level. You need to follow the ShockLevelAndMAINTAIN Process.

    These are also some good information about clearing up algae:
