    Cloudy blue

    So I started opening my pool about 2 weeks ago. When I took the tarp off it was a disgusting green mess and super stinky.
    I have spent lots of time scooping out leaves, vacuuming addis chlorine, back washing filter. But for some reason the pool has not cleared up yet. I can almost see the bottoms in the deep end, but not quite.
    I have pics but don't know how to post from my phone.
    As of this morning levels read.
    Fc 3 adding chlorine every other day.
    PH 6
    CYA 30
    I know my ph and cya are low. But I was thinking I need to get all the Algae and stuff cleared up before adding in more ph and cya.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    13,000 in ground saltwater, Hayward pro series sand filter, Hayward super pump, aqua collection turbo cell.

    I'd get that PH up pronto, THEN------see the article in Pool School on how to Slam it. Got one of our recommended test kits? Your FC is at bare bottom for your cya level. See the chlorine/cya chart for SLAM and maintenance levels.

    Unfourtutly I live in Canada and can not get the test kits recommended here. So, I am relying on test strips. Which did me fine last year.
    But ok. I will get the ph up and take it from there.

    I believe the Taylor test kits are available in Canada.
