We can help get your pool clear but we'll have to have a set of test results so we can get a "picture" of what's going on in your pool water.

Has your pool water been tested for iron content?

Welcome to TFP!

There shouldn't be any permanent problems. As duraleigh said, we just need a little more information to give you the correct advice. You should post a full set of water test results and also describe the water appearance in more detail. In particular, is it a clear transparent yellow/green, or is it cloudy murky? Also, can you explain about it being both yellow and green? Is that in different places, or depend on how you are looking at it?
