Did they test for metals? If your water is green, but clear, you could have a metal problem.

Did they test your CYA (conditioner) level?

I would recommend reading some of these articles to learn how to take care of your pool:

Having a pool is a lot of work unfortunately, but once you know how to take care of it and understand water chemistry, it becomes much easier. You could also have the pool filled in as another option. When we bought our house, our choice was to fix the pool or fill it in. It was actually more money to fill it in, so we opted to keep it and fix it. We've really enjoyed the pool over the years, but it does need regular upkeep.

Good luck, hope everything works out for you.
