CHEMICALS ALL OUT OF WHACK. NO CHLORINE READING

HELP! WHEN WE OPENED OUR POOL THIS YEAR, IT WAS GREEN COLORED. THE POOL STORE HAD US THROW 24 (YES, 24) BAGS OF BREAKOUT EXTRA (SHOCK) IN TOTHE POOL. IT DIDNT HELP. SO OVER THE COURSE OF A WEEK WE HAVE PUT IN ANOTHER 14 OR SO BAGS. STILL NO CHLORINE READING!! (MAYBE A 1.0, IN LIQUID TEST CHECK, BUT NO SHOW ON STRIP.) MY ALKALINITY IS HIGH, OVER 200, AND IN USING MURATIC ACID, NOW MY PH IS LOW, AND ALK. IS STILL HIGH. TODAY WE HAVE DECIDED TO DRAIN PARTIAL POOL. (DOING FOR 8 HOURS.) WATER IS MOSTLY CLEAR, A LITTLE CLOUDY, CORRECT COLOR, INGROUND 15X32 FIBERGLASS. WHAT SHOULD WE DO TO ADJUST EVERYTHIGN AFTER WE PARTIALLY DRAIN P[OOL? I AM AT MY WITS END, AS WE HAVE SPENT SOOO MUCH IN ONLY 1 WEEK. THANKS....
