we bought a larger pool (above ground) this year. We have been having the worst time trying to get it clear. The minute we add shock and algecide it turns cloudy. can anyone help us????????

We used flock and vaccuumed and it was clear , we added water and shock, voila! cloudy again. HELP

what is your chlorine and ph testing at?? Sometimes( i think, don't hold me to this) high ph can cause low chlorine and the cause clouding, use a floater and add some chlorine and see what that does, make sure all your readings are good, and have patience, mine was cloudy and then all the sudden( after doing NOTHING for several weeks) it was clear!!

I have the exact same problem. Were you able to figure out how to fix the problem?
