    FC: 2-5 (SWG kicks in or I add liquid chlorine)
    CC: 0
    PH: 7.2-8.0 (ranges while I slowly try to get TA down with muriatic acid)
    TA: 175
    CH: 275
    CYA: 70
    Salt: 3200


    Process for cleaning the pool: vacuum using intex deluxe kit, backwash 1-2 min until clear indicator, rinse 1-2 min, back to rinse.

    Gee. That looks like white plastic. Big pieces. No idea what it could be. It doesn't look organic in the least.

    Re: bottom pool debris

    could it be calcium coming off the SWG? do you see any scaling on the SWG or liner? could it be something blowing into your pool?

    Could you post a picture of the yard?
    It could be something from the surrounding environment.

    Re: bottom pool debris

    No pool toys, No nasty neighbors..lol.

    A few times I had to clean the electrolytic plates with vinegar as it has white color stuff (calcium?) and gives me an error 91, As soon as I clean it the swg continues to work for a few weeks. Could it be that it's coming from that?

    What causes/prevent it?
