Cloudy Water

OK, here goes.
About 5 months ago we had our pool redone, drained and re-plastered. Filled it and everything seemed OK, until we suddenly developed algae, about two weeks ago, in the water. I went to my local depot and bought an Algaecide Plus product which also called for a stabilizing shock be used one hour before applying the Algaecide Plus. FINALLY, got rid of the algae, the water is blue again but water is cloudy. Ran a test and found chlorine high but everything else seemed OK. Pool is a 10,000 play pool.

Any help would be appreciated.

Try running the filter constantly. Also have the stabilizer level in the pool water checked. This may be overdone and holding the chlorine but making it ineffective.
