Above ground 7,500 gal salt water pool. Was green when ready to open with leaves at the bottom. Added copper based Algecide, turned slightly blue, green mostly gone. FC was 0. Brought FC up to 7. Water turned cloudy. Pump running 24/7 and backwashing daily. Added Floc. Vacuumed. Water got a little After 2 days took the following readings:

FC 7
CC 0
TA 40
PH 7.1-7.2

Raised CYA to 40
Brought FC to 10
Been keeping the Chlorine around 10 for the last 4 days. It’s significantly clearer but not completely. I can actually see tiny particles suspended in the water

I know I didn’t follow protocol with the the algecide and the floc 😔. What do I do now? I’m still backwashing daily and filter is running 24/7 but the backwash water is not nearly as dirty as it used to be.
