How do you remove brown, swamp-like water from a swimming pool?

We moved in last year and enjoyed the pool for the better part of the summer. The previous owner had a "leaf net" cover for it, and not knowing any better, I left it on all fall/winter.
I went to take the cover off last week and the entire pool is filled with nasty water. I assume it's from the decaying leaves that had fallen onto the cover and were steeping in the pool for the last six months.
Shock and copious amounts of chlorine and particle remover have done nothing. So now... what do I try now?
