    Plaster or rocks??

    Looks like chunks of plaster from a slob getting some into open pipes during construction. You're very lucky they came loose and came through without clogging a pipe somewhere underground. If any of your returns look weak, you know what to look for now. People are always finding bits of stray plaster behind the eyeballs.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    I built 2 pools by 2 different pool builders in the last 5 years. In the neighborhood of 1 year in, I found similar things in my filter baskets. I never could find out where they came from, especially in my current pool where the plaster is blue and the "rocks" were white.
