HELP ME PLEASE! I was gone for two weeks and my gfi popped, my salt water pool went completely green. I put a bunch of shock into it after I vacuumed it, it turned blue and I’ve had my pump running for days. I have back washes it and added clarifier twice now and it’s still blue and I can not see the bottom, it’s only 4’ deep above ground. I’m at Witt’s end please help

Welcome to TFP! :wave: Let's start with a few simple questions:
1 - How many gallons is this pool?
2 - How are you testing your water?
3 - Can you provide a full set of test results?

Be sure to update your signature with all of your pool and equipment info. It will help later.

And until you answer the questions above, don't add anything else but liquid chlorine to your pool. Otherwise you could make a bad situation even worse. You can safely add 5 ppm of chlorine per day. See PoolMath to determine how much that is for your pool.
