What exactly are your levels? You need to get your pH to 7.2-7.4 then keep your pool at shock level. You cant just shock the pool once and expect it to go away. You need to get your chlorine to at least 11ppm (higher depending on your CYA level) and keep it there until the level hold overnight. You need to brush your entire pool and leave your filter running 24hrs/day until the water clears. Backwash when necessary.
