green tinted water

Water bugs, swimming insects and sweat bees.
Foaming bubbly water. Frogs in the pool.
Dead animals in the swimming pool.

You don't say what the total alkalinity might be. If low, even though everything else is OK, this can cause a greenish and cloudy tint. Slowly adjust the TA to 80-100 PPM. Then, of course, the pH will be off. Adjust the pH to 7.2 and super clorinate with liquid chlorine. After 8 hours , shut off the pump, let the particles settle out and give it a good vacuuming to waste. If still green and cloudy, get a good commercial de-mineralizer and follow the label instructions. Good luck and I hope this helps.
