Keep the pump going.
Make sure you use stabilizer
Also use the clairifier

Give it some more time

Rain water will do this to pools, especially if you have trees around and above the pool. All you can do is shock and wait and see, if you have algea you might want to consider algeaside also and filter cleaner. I would shock the pool and brush everything, be sure to put all cleaning equipment in shocked pool as algea will stay on cleaning equipment and when you have a clean pool and put dirty equipment in you are back to square one.
