16'x32' above ground, chlorine
Using test strip all chem are in the OK region

After an initial severe algae problem, all chemicals are now good but the pool is cloudy. I have been adding a clarifier for 4 days with very little effect. Pump and sand filter appear to be working well at 10 PSI. The local pool store suggested I connect my vacuum and turn upside down in the middle of the pool at night...no effect. Also covered the skimmer basket with a filter saver liner...no effect. Any thoughts?
