I just got an above ground pool. I filled it on Saturday and we put chemicals in it on Sunday. We forgot to run the pump on Sunday night and when i went out yesterday after work the water was a light green color. I added more chemicals and shocked it and turned the pump on and now it is a brown/green color and you can not see the bottom of the pool. Any suggestions other than draining the pool and starting over again???
