What can you do if your pool water is white instead of clear?

I turned my pool water white

I just turned my pool water white, by accident, of course, because I put too much PH balancer in at the same time as my shock-it. Apparently you are supposed to wait at least 2 hrs after the shock-it. I'm having to replace 1/2 my water with fresh, and am pumping just air into it. It's clearing a little, but this looks like it's going to take a few days. When I test it, my pH it perfect but I don't show any br or chlor, at all, after 2 bags of shock-it. Great start to a hot summer, huh?

Shock-it has no chlorine. next time you shock your pool be sure to usechlorine chlorine tabs or granules to maintain the chlorine levels.
