Algaecide and Shocking Left Pool Water Milky

I have a 16 ft. above ground pool and I had to put algaecide and shock in it about a week ago and it cleared the algae, but left a milky substance. I have bought a vacuum and other chemicals to clear it rounding about $200.00 on it already I am frustrated as nothing is working even with adamant and persistent care; can anyone tell me what to do, please? I do not want to have to drain the entire pool though it would have been cheaper initially.


Thanks respectfully.

Make sure you are cleaning out your filters, and dont use clarifiers.

I have cleaned the filter every few hours but a chemical they gave me to let form clouds at the bottom of the pool, they told me to let the clouds form and do not run the pump so I have been doing both of letting it sit overnight to form these clouds and using a new vacuum whereas the vacuum will only clean the debris and not the clouds for whatever reason. I am at a loss for what to do.
Thank you so very much for your response as it was greatly appreciated.

Sorry you are having issues when it is so hot! Yikes!

There is a great pool forum out there that my friend swears by for her above ground. I found it has a listing for your problem....perhaps it can help your situation:



If this doesn't, is it possible to call either the person who installed or place where the pool was purchased to get their expert feedback?

I only that because your weather and other conditions (even what is in your water) where you are, may be different than where this person (or us even) are located.

Hope you get some relief! No fun to have a pool you can't enjoy on a hot day! Let us know how it goes!

Perhaps this site can help you out: www.hunker.com/.../my-pool-water-is-cloudy-after-adding...

If not, I would consult a local pool store - they may be helpful :)
