Problems with above ground pool

I have a 10000 vinyl pool. Over the last month I have shocked it, still green, put in algacide, still green, vacuumed, backwashed, shocked it again, still green. It started to get better than I put in a clarifier. Looked a little better. Than it was windy and rainy, now it's green again. I shocked it last night and it is still green. After a few days of not shocking it wasn't showing any chlorine levels at all. It's high right now, because I shocked it last night.
What do I do?

i have about the same problem with mine but when i used the algecide, it went from green to cloudy overnight. the best i have come up with is i cant seem to get enough free avalable clorine. when i shock it the clorine levels are up, but not free clorine. i think it has someting to do with pH but not sure. this is the largest[18x4] pool we have had and the pump seems to be the same as the smaller pools. im starting to think that the circulation/ filtration is inadeqate as well. if you figure it out, please inform.

The most important thing in pool water is ph it must be 7.2 to 7.6 if you do not have this reading you are wasting time and money on chemicals.
