I have the same problem. I have been told by many pool stores and this forum to keep putting it in until it comes down.

Theysay to use a 1/2 gallon at a time mixed with wtre until it comes down.

I have a new 33,000 Plaster pool. I put in 3 cups a day until it came down (about 1 month)
Hope this helps
