    Filter sends dirt back into pool

    First time owner of 24 foot above ground pool with Carefree Waterway 19 inch sand filter. My problem is when vacuuming the pool, dirt is returned to the pool. What do I need to do? Many thanks!

    Re: Filter sends dirt back into pool

    Do you mean dirt that is yucky dirt being vacuumed up and not filtered before being returned to the pool, or do you mean sand from the filter is being put into the pool?

    Some more details and a picture if you have them would be great. Knowing your complete pool setup, and your numbers from an approved test kit will help us too.
