so I was going thru the process of opening my pool this week.
took the cover off Sunday and started filling it. got called away ansd was gone for 2 days. went back yesterday and now there is algae everywhere!

I finished filling the pool and threw 8 gallons of liquid chlorine in and have been running the filter non-stop since last evening.
do i just continue on this course until it clears up? what is my next step? is 8 gallons of liquid chlorine for an 18,000 gal above ground adequate or should i go get some more today?
