New pool owner with cloudy water

Hello. first off thanks for letting me join.
I have a 15X42 summer escape pool That turned totally green on me. filter ran 24/7 I thought chemical levels were good, I assumed the small pump and filter were not adequate So I purchased a large sand filter and pump! I watched videos on youtube on killing algae and double shocked it.added algaecide and ran pump for 18 hours... green went away but now I have very cloudy water. my chorine level is .5-1 which I think is quite low and ph is 7.8 perfect according to my test kit.
Where do I go from here???
