Problem: Not making any headway on pool. It is just staying a light green and is cloudy. It has been this way for about a month. Can't keep chlorine level up.
CYA: 0 before adding big bucket of CYA now is between 0 and 30 (Test Strip)
My pool: Above ground, 36,000
Pool chemicals: Yesterday added Bucket of CYA, 4 bags of power powder plus every 12 hours x 3, and green out. Today added baking soda and it brought ph up to the 7.8
My pump & filter: Hayward swimpro with filter cartridge.
I have yet to see the bottom of the pool. The pool started out very dark green with lots of debris (leaves and whirly birds). After the initial shocking it turned to a lighter shade of green and got cloudy. Please help!! I am very fustrated!
