Ok, I've been reading for a few days here. Call me dense but I need help. I have a pool side bible study for children starting in a week and can't get the pool clear.
I had it almost clear & my filter split down the side - replaced it, got it almost clear again and my pump went out , ordered a new pump (a bigger one) and now it's been 2 weeks and still cloudy. When I look at it from the side, it has a slight green tint but when I take a sample it's just cloudy. (I can only see cleary about 5" down to the first step.)
I am also running a newly installed Chlorease SWG. I put in the salt 2 days ago thinking that it would help, it's all dissolved, water is better but still cloudy. When I backwashed this morning, there was no green tint, just very cloudy water.
I do not know if this is a key, but I had lots of small red worms (well, they are gray now and all dead). I vaccummed to waste for about an hour, the day before I added the salt. Still see a few of them floating around but gray & dead. I do have a few of the usual pool/water bugs but I usually control that with Dawn dish liquid.

CYA: it's a strip so I can't tell (30-50???)
I know, I need to get a good test kit!! Working on that.
My pool is a 24' round Above Ground, filter - Jacuzzi Lazer L192C (19", 200 lb sand filter), pump is a Hayward Power Flow Matrix 1.5 HP.
