I have the same issue, We used well water with a filter on it and then used an algae remover and then also shocked it and put a chlorine tablet in there. All levels look fine, except that the bottom is yellow which makes the pool looks bad. Let me know if you ever figured anything out. :)

I had constant problems with algae and my pool store suggested that I purchase the circulator. He said because of the power of the circulator, it would be very hard for algae to stick to the walls and floor of my pool. I have not had a problem with algae for years now. I replaced all my fixed wall returns with the circulators and my pool came alive and looks sparkling clean. What a difference it made in my pool. I don't fight with algae anymore. It is a low cost item and a great investment if you want to have more fun in your pool and not the hassles. :thumbup:
