We got a new pool & I switched over to a salt system. The buddy who is plumbing it still hasn't got it done! It's been sitting with salt in the water , water level up to eyeball, for 2 weeks and is starting to get green. I'm very frustrated with him to say the least. Can I put salt water oxidizing shock in it without it circulating?I can stir it up with brush & net. It is potassium monopersulfate as active ingredient. Gosh, if I'd have just stuck with chlorine I'd know what to do. Thanks for yor help.

Welcome to the forum!
Add liquid chlorine! Now! Add 5ppm FC worth right now.
Does the pool water have any CYA in it?
I suggest you read ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry.
