Hello all...I'm another newbie joining in because...you guessed it...we just bought a new house w/ a pool. Being new to this, we've consulted our local pool supply store and have followed directions to a T for opening w/ Baquacil (the previous owners let us know this is what they always used). The problem is that the pool was not well covered over the winter and there was tons of debris in the pool. We've added all the chems, taken a sample back to the pool store, and the water tests well. However, the water is still green and, what I assume, appears to be full of algae. Of course we want our water to be crystal clear, but after following all the instructions, adding $150 worth of chems, and running the filter constantly for 3 days, we're still green.

Any advice would be appreciated. Our kids are about to go nuts wanting to get in our pool!

Thanks.
Ally

More info....it's a 10,000 gallon above ground pool w/ vinyl liner w/ decking built around it, so getting underneath is difficult. We use a hayward sand filter and it took us forever to figure out we also have a main drain. So that's what that extra hose is for....duh....ha.
