We have a gunite pool that we cannot seem to keep clear. It seems to go from being okay one day to slightly green and cloudy the next. Help!! :(

What's your chlorine readings? How big is your pool? I'd take the CL up to 12 ppm with a good shock. Then get some polyquat.....(whatever--after that don't matter, just make sure it says "polyquat" on label) and add a few ounces and run pump all nite and see if that clears it up.

It is 25k gallons. We shocked it yesterday so the chlorine level is high right now. I will take your suggestion on the polyquat...

Mine is 22000 US gallons & keeping the chlorine level up throughout the season should keep algae at bay. I shock mine every week with 5 gallons of liquid chlorine.
