What would you like to do?
First, take a sample of the water to your local pool dealer. It could be that your algaecide isn't a high enough strength. You may have to add it and run you filter for 12 hrs X 3 days. Change your sand in your sand filter.

If there is brown or mustard-colored stuff at the bottom of your pool and you've tried to vacuum it but it is still there is there anything you can put in the pool to get rid of it?
If it appears to be stuck or growing to the bottom in spots, Let the PH of your pool get a little high Then take a peice of PVC pipe long enough to reach the spot and so you c…an hold onto it outside the pool.place one end over the stain add muriatic acid or dry acid PH down to the other end, The acid is heavier and will go straight to the stain after a few minutes brush stain and repeat as necessary making sure to keep your PH in check. NEW ANSWER: You don't have rust stains as indicated by the treatment above. You have mustard algae. FOR PLASTER POOLS ONLY, need downward adjustments for chlorine levels for vinyl liner. Sometimes difficult to get rid of. Back wash filter; extend run time on filter to about 20 hrs; You may also want to add Yellow Treat by United Chem. or Yellow Out by another company in combination with the added chlorine. Add 2 - 4 gal (depending on size of pool )of 12% liq. chlorine - 10% if that is all that is available; brush the pool floor and walls at least 2 x per day for the first 2 days then as needed and then to once per week to keep algae off of the walls; next day check for clarity - should be better. Back wash filter again, adjust chlorine levels to keep at about 5.0 and adjust pH to 7.6. When all signs of algae are gone return filter run time to about 8 - 12 hrs. - summer. Filtration - a clean filter - lots of run time for the pump and generous amounts of chlorine are best solutions for algae control
What can you do if you have shocked your Intex above-ground pool several times but your water is still green?
i shocked my pool several times and it is still green. come to find out that the leaves that had been falling in my pool were eating up the the chlorine level. do you ha…ve leaves falling or that are sitting on the bottom of your pool? Ans:: Clean filter. Extend filter run time to 24/7. Test the water for chlor. Add chlor, wait 10 to 15 min. test again. If no reading ~ you did not add enough chlor. Repeat until you reach at least 5.0 ppm. Brush with a nylon pool brush. Clean filter. Resume filter ops. to 6 to 8 hrs. or more if water keeps getting cloudy. You may have to add chlor daily if you have no conditioner in the water. k
Trace amounts of copper in your water. Use a metal remover from your pool store.
If you had algae scrubbed the pool added algaecide shocked balanced clarified your water and it was still cloudy Then you upped the pH and it didn't stay that way.How do u clear the water up?
Answer You need to be more specific in your questions. "upped the pH" -- What were your pH readings? Did you add soda ash or similar product to raise the pH? Y…our chemical readings - chlorine, pH and alkalinity readings are needed for a complete answer to your question. What type filter do you have? Sand, D. E., Cartridge? How long are you running the pump? What size filter do you have - sq. ft. ? How many gallons h2o? How much acid did you add at one time? How much of each chemical did you add to correct and what specifically did you use? As you can see there are many parameters involved in solving your situation. Ken
Add clarifier, available at your local pool supply.
If your pool was a cloudy green and you shocked it and added algaecide and now it is a very cloudy blue what do you do?
Run the filter 24/7 until clear - backwashing the filter or cleaning the cartridges as needed. Add more chlorine - 2 to 4 gal. for a plaster pool - somewhat less for vin…yl liner.
I just did this yesterday, and I do it every time I open my pool. Usually I have green algae blooms formed from my pool being closed for the winter. This use to scare me, I …remember my first season where I ran out and bought a crap ton of chemicals and just wasted money…I was uneducated. Now I get a 50% algaecide, usually copper based from wal-mart and dump it in the pool. Keep it running for 24hrs, and when you come back the next day it should be like milk about a foot down but not green anymore…. This is a good sign…. You may notice a yellow staining on the side of the pool, this is in part from the copper but mainly from the dead algae. Once again in my first season, I panicked but all is well…. Then I took the sink and sweep and add the whole bottle, let it run for a few hours and shut everything down…. The next morning, crystal clear but there was a light white film at the bottom of the pool. For here you have to sweep too waste, if you don't know what that is google it, it's out there. My sink and swim always worked but I did have a friend where it failed and never settled. They say that it will remain cloudy if you still have live algae in the pool, but I have never encountered that. He repeated the above process and was crystal clear in a weekend. So, to answer your question, no it shouldn't be cloudy. If you added the sink and sweep, ran it for 2 hours and shut down the pumps for a night you should be good to go with a thin white film on the bottom.
Shock treatment for the green part. If it is still cloudy you can add a clarifier sold at your local pool supply.
If you have shocked added soda algaecide and clarifier to an 18x36 inground pool and my water is still cloudy and light green what now?
When you get desperate the thing to do is flocculate. # Get a good flocculant from the pool shop # stop the Filter and set it to waste # Cast the flocculant o…ver the surface of the pool # Let the whole lot settle for 2 days without running the filtration system. # After a couple of days you will note that the water has cleared up however there is a layer of cloudy looking water at the bottom of the pool. # Gently lower the hand pool vacuum into it and vacuum it carefully to waste try not to stir it up too much and definitely do not put i through the filter. # You may have to do this again however it is unlikely. # when all of the crap of the bottom is gone stop the pump turn it to rinse for 30 seconds with the pump running then stop the pump again and return the unit back to filter position. # Done your water should now be clear again and you will have lost up to a foot of water.
Neglect, poor filtration run times, lack of proper chemistry, lack of chlorine, high bather load, dogs in the pool, leaves and debris in the pool, etc, etc,etc,etc.
It sounds like you have a problem with algae Try shocking the pool and adding an algaecide. While you are getting the chemicals you need at the pool shop take in as ampl…e of water and have it tested. The pool shop wil be able to tel you how to balance your water to avoid the problem in the future.
Why does dirty water comeback into the pool while you are vacuum the pool you have to vacuum to waste?
The particles are too fine for the sand to trap, sand filters trap particles down to 25 microns. Dead algae can be a lot finer than that. The only filter that can trap real fi…ne particles down to 3 microns are d.e. filters.
