What did the pool look like to start with? What is 1k 200?

The chemicals do not take effect right away wait 24–48 hours. Also put the pump and filter on to power the jets to get the water moving around.

If there seems to be a considerable amount of haze in the water, you may also need a flocculant.

take a sample of pool water to the local pool store for testing. They’ll tell you what you need to add next in what quantity. I learned this the hard way!
